My SQL wont start (path /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld not found)
Posted on 2008-06-25
Hello, I have a fresh install of Red Hat 5.2 which I think comes with MySql installed (rpm -qa | grep -i mysql yields ' mysql-5.0.45-7.el5'). mysqladmin -V yields 'mysqladmin Ver 8.41 Distrib 5.0.45, for redhat-linux-gnu on i686'
Now, I don't seem to have some of the paths I would be expecting.
I have the /usr/bin/my(mysqlshow | mysqladmin | mysql | mysqldump | mysqlimport)
I have /etc/my.cnf
I don't have /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld
I don't have the database directory of /var/lib/mysql, actually nothing is here, no socket file, anything...
