Services Stop On Linux When Logging Out

I'm running Fedora 5. A problem I'm experiencing is that when I log out of Fedora is that the httpd and mysql services stop. I don't know why this happens. On the Debian Linux machine, when I log out these services keep running. What setting do I need to use to keep these services working in Fedora?

Thanks.

What exactly do you mean by "log out of Fedora"? Click Exit from the desktop? I suspect whatever you do must send a signal to these daemons, SIGHUP or possibly worse. Why this would happen would depend on how they were started.

I log out by clicking the Fedora icon and selecting "Log Out ...". Then I press the "End Current Session" button. On Debian Linux, when I logout, services are still running and I can access the web and database servers. On Fedora 5, when I log out MySQL stops running. I don't know why it does that. I did a default install of Fedora and didn't change anything with the database server.

Thanks for the detail. I'll have to leave this for another Expert - I don't run Fedora. With what you've now detailed, there should be takers.

Thanks loki982. You pointed me in the right direction. I checked the runlevels of mysqld with chkconfig and everything was off except for runlevel 5. I found another web site which said that runlevel 3 should be on, so I switched it on with:

                               chkconfig --level 3 mysqld on

Now when I log out of Fedora, the database server is still running.

Thanks for your help. BTW ... I doubled the point value of this question to 500. I think your help was worth the extra points.
