mySQL as part of RedHat 9 install

P: n/a
Lou
When I did my RedHat9 install, I choose Workstation and customized the
packages I wanted install. As a part of that customization, I chose
mySQL DB; however, I can't seem to find any RedHat documentation that
says how to get to these installed packages. I would like to just start
using them, but not sure where to start. Any hints to get up and going
quickly?

TIA,
Lou

Only one hint. Read the manual:

At the prompt, type:

mysql

.... and hit ENTER. What happens?

"cannot connect to Local MYSQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql..."
When I check this directory nothing is there.

Yeah, I knew that. Key word there was "quickly". Any experiences using
the RedHat 9 image? If so, where could I start from in the manual to
move up the curve quickly.

If I wanted to read another manual, I just assume stick to using DB2 or
Oracle.

thank you, that did the trick...now it's running and I can get the
prompt. Does this mean it will always start or if not, is there a way
to add it the "services" that run on start-up?

No. It means that it is not automatically starting, and will not unless you
tell it to. An easy way (in RH9) to set it to autostart is to type 'setup'
at the prompt, select 'Services' from the menu, and place a tick next to
mysqld.
