MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases.
The service version (shown in native reported format ) is:
# mysql --version mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, for redhat-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.1
MySQL is configured to start at the VM boot time. To change the status, please use service: run a System V init script, and chkconfig: updates and queries runlevel information for system services.
To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password' /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h centos55-x86.domain.com password 'new-password'
Alternatively you can run:
which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default. This is
strongly recommended for production servers. See the manual for more instructions.
You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd /usr ; /usr/bin/mysqld_safe
You can test the MySQL daemon with mysql-test-run.pl:
cd mysql-test ; perl mysql-test-run.pl
Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!
