Hi,

MySql is usually installed under /usr/local/mysql or /usr/local/mysql[-version]

Hope this helps,
Julien

I'm attaching some instructions I wrote while ago for a specific application regarding the installation of PHP/MySql from the source files.
It was written for a RHL, but should work for Fedora, CentOS or any RedHat based system. Hope the details helps you.

Can you try to type "locate mysql_config" in a command prompt and send the result ?

This executable is supposedly in the bin folder of your mysql installation directory.

Maybe these will help you to find the locations
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/linux-installation-rpm.html
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/binary-installation.html
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/source-installation-layout.html

From the ps output you have posted above, it seems you have installed MySQL from binary package or RPM.
