Thread: MySQL community server

  1. #1

    Default MySQL community server

    Hello all. I consider myself a linux noob. The thing about this is, I have played around with various distros of linux over many years. Eventually I get frustrated at how ridiculous something as simple as text editing can be.

    I'm having a problem starting mysql. I have already ran the install script afer downloading mysql community server from yast.

    Please, just tell me what I need to do to start the server. I tried to issue rcmysql start, but it says "The absolute path to 'rcmysql' is 'usr/sbin/rcmysql' so running it may require superuser privileges. So i say SUDO rcmysql, enter password and again same message.

    Anyone that has any help, it would be extremely appreciated. I never stick with linux because of frustrating things like this.

    SUDO in Suse runs with the users environment so paths are not fully that of roots

    use su -
    note the dash required to have full root environment

    or use the full path

    sudu usr/sbin/rcmysql

    To be honest things in the Linux world change to fast for books. By the time they are printed they are out of date.

    The best place to start is here

    noobixide, you're really doing this the hardest way possible for a new
    user. Go into Yast via the Computer menu, System, System Services, and
    then find MySQL and set it to be enabled (auto-start at normal runlevels).
    Now whenever you boot the system will automatically start the service for
    you.

    Good luck.
