Dear Experts,

I am using the Solaris 8. I am not the root of the system. Is it possible if I want to  auto start the server (MySQL server installed in my home directory) when the system reboot?

Thanks a lot!

Tintin is right, but you could ask the sysadmin to create a startup job that su'd to your user and started the MySQL server.

Another possibility is if you can run cron jobs - Create a cron job that checks every 5 minutes to see if MySQL is up - And if not, start it.
