Still stuck with mysql installation

I'm still stuck in the installation process for mysql, so I'm expanding the scope to include Unix/Linux domains:

    http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MySQL/Q_22851282.html

If someone can help me resolve that question (for 500 pts), please post a comment to this question for an additional 500 pts.

I'd really like to get past this issue.  Thanks.

The installation does not create a mysql.conf file by default.  The installation instructions lists that the config needs to be created.    I beleive it is to prevent overwritting of an existing conf file.

After you run mysql_install_db successfully,
copy support-files/my-medium.cnf to /etc/mysql.cnf
then run support-files/mysql.server.

If you still get the same error, post the error message.

Thanks.

You do not necessarily have to have my.cnf in /etc/ directory. MySql looks for it in /etc/ or the <mysql-install-dir>/data/my.cnf or the user home directory ~/.my.cnf.

So you can pick up either the small / medium or the large config file from the data directory of the mysql installation and then copy it as my.cnf. Does that answer your question?
