    Unanswered: starting up mysql on bootup

    Hi again

    I'm sure this is a easy thing to do, but I cant find the instructions anywhere.

    Could someone please tell me how to set up MySql so it starts up automatically when you boot up Linux? I know it can be done, just don't know how

    Thanks a lot

    Go to the mysql directory. In directory support-files you can find file "mysql.server". This file copy (as root) to the /etc/init.d/ directory.
    Then create symlink to the mysql.server in /etc/rc3.d or in /etc/rc5.d (it depend on your runlevel).
    Thats all...
