mysqld missing


Hi,
I just built a CentOS server and inlcuded mysql in the install. The mysql files are there but I can't find mysqld
I did a find on the system and no file found.
How do I go about getting mysqld fired up?

edit to add:
Here is the error message I'm getting:
[root@netcarstop ~]# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

I think it is because I do not have a mysqld running.

so I tried this:

[root@netcarstop ~]# chkconfig --level 35 mysqld on
error reading information on service mysqld: No such file or directory
[root@netcarstop ~]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start
-bash: /etc/init.d/mysqld: No such file or directory
[root@netcarstop ~]#

Any ideas?

Hi.

# service mysqld start

should do the trick.

Tried that:

[root@netcarstop ~]# service mysqld start
mysqld: unrecognized service

Ahhhh I bet that's it. There is a mysql and a mysql-server package.

Do you need both. In other words do I need to remove the mysql stuff I already have before trying to get mysql-server?

Thanks Bathory I think you hit on it.

mysql is the client. You can use it to connect to the server, issue queries, add/remove tables and so on.
