Question problem starting MYSQL 4.0.1

Hey Guys,

I am running Red Hat 9,
MySQL 4.0.1
Tomcat 4
JDK 1.4

When I reboot my machine I have to manually turn on Mysql

but if I use the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start
I get MYSQL Start (Failed)

but if I start mysql using:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld &

It starts up fine.

I am not sure why?

What does your /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld say? Have you even looked at this script to make sure everything is correct, etc?

Try doing a:

sh +x /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld

And see where it fails at, it might be trying to use the new command to start mysql which went from safe_mysqld to mysqld_safe or something along those lines..
