default mysql LINUX user (ie named "mysql");
Posted on 2008-06-13
Hi, anyone know the initial password, or how to get it, for the LINUX user named "mysql" (setup by default by mysql on installation).
a solution in fedora to quickly change owner / group of 98 files.
Problem is, I copied over the data files from my database to this installation. Now owner is "root", and so mysql cant write to them I need to either login as user "mysql" and recopy or batch chown (think thats right command) all the files in that directory. When you change preferences on the folder it does give you the option to change files enclosed, but it is permissions only, not ownership.
