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.
