why dont i see the port listening?
 
i have started mysql server
i can use the mysql terminal monitor
but yet i cant find out the port 3306 when i type the command netstat -ntpl
i have read the my.cnfand the port used is 3306
why dont i see the port listening?

Post the Output for below command and check whether port is listening on port number 3306 (mysql)


arun@arun-desktop:~$ netstat -apn | grep "mysql"
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info

unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 6921 - /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

arun@arun-desktop:~$ netstat -apn | grep :3306

Are you executing netstat -ntpl as root or as normal user? You should do this as root, running it as normal user will not show all, only those associated with that specific user.

is it because skip-networking is enabled in my.cnf?

yes i am executing metstat -ntpl as the user root
but still i cannot find the port
is it because of skip networking?

I guess so:
Quote:

--skip-networking

Do not listen for TCP/IP connections at all. All interaction with mysqld must be made using named pipes or shared memory (on Windows) or Unix socket files (on Unix). This option is highly recommended for systems where only local clients are permitted. See Section 8.9.8, “DNS Lookup Optimization and the Host Cache”.
