mysqld can't start as root (linux)
Posted on 2014-01-26
I'm running funplug on a NAS drive and want to setup mysqld on it. I've got it going pretty far, but now when I try to start up with 'mysqld restart' I get the following error:
Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!
fine. I've got no server running and so I can't create more mysql users. So how can I get this going from the command line without using mysql? (chicken & egg?)
