I have the following problem :
I have to execute /usr/local/mysql/scripts/mysql_install_db
but mysql_install is a Bourne shell script
I'am superuser and I have /bin/bash
How can I change the /bin/bash to /bin/sh in order to execute the mysql_install script?

the 1st line of the script sets what shell to use,


means that this is a /bin/sh script
just change it to whatever you want there.
