Subject:Install problem: configure --prefix not working
View as plain text  
I am trying to install mysql in a non-standard directory - specifically

Subsequently, I ran the following configure command:

./configure --prefix=/app/mysql --with-plugins=innobase,myisam

There were no problems with the compile, but mysql failed to start.
Furthermore, the following output was produced in the nohup.out file

-bash-3.2$ cat nohup.out
090211 09:40:35 mysqld_safe Logging to '/var/log/mysqld.log'.
mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/lib/mysql': Permission denied
chown: cannot access `/var/lib/mysql': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/var/lib/mysql': No such file or directory
090211 09:40:35 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from
/app/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe: line 96: /var/log/mysqld.log: Permission denied
/app/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe: line 133: /var/log/mysqld.log: Permission denied
090211 09:40:35 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file
/var/run/mysqld/ ended
/app/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe: line 96: /var/log/mysqld.log: Permission denied

For some reason, the mysql install is looking to /var even though I
specificied /app/mysql in the compile.

How do I fix this?
