Subject:Setup question on mysql under Linux
View as plain text  
I'm having trouble getting myslqd to run as a user other than root when it is 
started by mysqld_safe. I folowed the steps in the manual but mysqld 
continues to run as root, mysqld_safe runs as the changed user. I check 
my.conf and the user statement is in the mysqld section as outlined. 

If I manually start mysqld directly it runs as the changed user. so its 
something in mysqld thats changing it but I cannot find out what. I have a 
little programming knowledge but I'm no master.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance!!!
