[Snort-users] mysql not starting at boot

Check the rc.<runlevel> dir for a SXXmysqld file, it will be a symlink
to the file in init.d.  or try "chkconfig mysqld on" then "service
mysqld start"

If you are talking about one system trying to connect to another, make
sure you poke a hole in iptables to allow mysql fro the host you need to
connect.

Subject: [Snort-users] mysql not starting at boot

Hi All,

below is my /etc/init.d/mysql content, but, mysql is not starting at
boot on Fedora3. Have I missed something fundamental.? I need mysql to
start at boot for snort to connect to it. Currently, snort gives an
error stating it can't connect. Cheers.

Mark Sargent.

# - Create a /etc/my.cnf file with the following information:
#   [mysqld]
#   basedir=<path-to-mysql-installation-directory>
# - Add the above to any other configuration file (for example
~/.my.ini)
#   and copy my_print_defaults to /usr/bin

changes
