Newbie Installing MySQL for practice
Hi I am a newbie installing MySQL. Im trying to teach myself how to learn more about Linux. Im trying to follow a guide from a Sams teach yourself book. Oddly enough its giving me some steps that are not working.
I basically put the source distribution from a CD to the /usr/local/ directory and extracted the MySQL archive from cdrom.
made a link to mysql directory
then went into the mysql directory where all the files are located.
The book says this:
#useradd-g mysql mysql
- This worked fine But then had problems with below
"Issue the following series of commands to finish the installation and start your MySQL server: "
#chown -R root .
#chown -R mysql mysql_data
#chgrp -R mysql .
#bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &
So when i type in the first command i get
-bash: scripts/mysql_install_db: No such file or directory
I checked the directory scripts and its in there. Tried different variations too and same error. Wondering what I can do of if anyone is familiar with this? What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
