Hi zirich_2002,

Here is what you need to do. To start the service immediately run the following command as root.
( "#" denotes root run command as root user)
( "$" denotes command can be run as any user.

# service mysqld start

To get mysql to start at boot time for runlevels 2-5 run:

# chkconfig --level 2345 mysqld on

or just

# chkconfig mysqld on

Regards,

M

Hi zirich_2002,

Did you install it from a tarball or an rpm?

If you installed the rpms make sure you installed the package mysql-server too.

Where is the binaries installed is it under /usr/local or /usr

The default installation for mysql is no password for the root user if the login is comming from the localhost. Otherwise you will need to do a grant if the connection is coming from anywhere else.

Eg.

GRANT ALL ON * TO 'USERNAME'@'IPADDR' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD'

See http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/GRANT.html for the syntax.

Hello Everyone
     sory for the latency, I found the solution:
     > rpm -e --nodeps MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm
     and MySQL-server-4.0.18-0.i386.rpm will be installed.
