copy support-files/mysql.server, how do I

copy support-files/mysql.server, how is this done

Ok i got it in there ok. but i cant stop it start it or even do a status

Its asking me to copy files to a dir, i've had a good search for it and haven't be able to find a REF about it. unless i'm using the wrong search words

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server
to the right place for your system

I'm alittle lost but i got this far.


fedora Core 2 with latest MySQL, MySQL-server-4.0.20-0.i386.rpm

Some other errors i get

[root@rockinghamgateway root]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start
-bash: /etc/init.d/mysqld: No such file or directory
[root@rockinghamgateway root]#

[root@rockinghamgateway root]# service mysqld on
mysqld: unrecognized service
[root@rockinghamgateway root]#

[root@rockinghamgateway root]# whereis mysqld
mysqld: /usr/sbin/mysqld /usr/share/man/man1/mysqld.1.gz
[root@rockinghamgateway root]#

[root@rockinghamgateway root]# /etc/init.d/mysql restart
No mysqld pid file found. Looked for /var/lib/mysql/
[root@rockinghamgateway root]#

From the source directory run:
cp support-files/mysql.server /etc/init.d/mysql
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/mysql
chkconfig mysql on
service mysql start

Thumbs up Worked for me

thanks david I had a similar problem and spent a long time looking for files and directories that didn't exist. I created /etc/init.d and copied mysql.server into it:

mkdir /etc/init.d
cp /opt/lampp/bin/mysql/mysql.server /etc/init.d/mysql

and performed

chmod 755 /etc/init.d/mysql

'chkconfig' doesn't seem to exist in my distro (Arch)
and I omitted 'server' to use the command:

mysql start

which worked just fine, now I can change my PATH and be all good. cheers!
