MySQL Starting Problem

I just installed php-mysql on a server here, but I don't have the mysqld service in /etc/init.d. How do I start this service up?

mysql has a server part and a client part. Generally broken up into different packages in many distros.

In general, php-mysql used to integrate php with MySQL. If you want MySQL, you will have to install mysql and mysql-server. You can do it using yum.

yum install mysql
yum install mysql-server
