difference between localstatedir and datadir
Before installing mysql, i thought i do some research..
came across few key words that i couldn't understand....
and i was hoping someone could help me with this
my plans is to install mysql in /wwwroot/mysql
and i like to maintain the databases in the folder var/mysqldata
./configure --prefix=/wwwroot/mysql --localstatedir=/var/mysqldata
./configure --prefix=/wwwroot/mysql --datadir=/var/mysqldata
between the localstatedir and datadir... which configuration saves or keeps the database that you create...
looked this up but it just got more confusing.
can someone explain the difference between the 2 for me, please..
