MySQL RPM Installation

Hi all,

I've downloaded and I think I've installed the latest version of MySQL but would like some help. (running SuSE 8)

To install the RPM I double clicked the RPM file and this launched KPackage, from there I installed selected MySQL-Server and it's showing as installed but has a red x on the icon. I then went into the File List screen in KPackage and noticed that all the files except /etc/my.cnf had a green tick next to it so I guess that it almost worked but how do I then get this /etc/my.cnf installed?

Is there anything I can do to test the installation to see if it's working?

THe reason I wanted MySQL installed is so that I can then install PHP-Nuke

Any help appreciated, thanks.

From a terminal, type: rpm -qa | grep -i mysql will tell you all of the packages that are installed with mysql in the name.

To find out all the info about a package, type: rpm -qil <packagename>.

Not really sure about Suse, but you should have something in the /etc/rc3.d folder with mysql in it, such as S90mysql. If so, type (as root): /etc/rc3.d/S90mysql start
