    How are you trying to change the startup parameters?  The options available depend on the program with which you are working.  You can find information on each here:

    To show the list of users, log into mysql from the command line and query the mysql.user table.  Below is an example of how I do it:

    # mysql
    mysql> select * from mysql.user;

    I am new to Linux.  the problem was that I was not signed on as root and did have rights to change anything.  I am progressing now.  Thank-you for responding.
