I have been trying to get mysql running for the past two days without luck. I added these two packages using sysinstall from FTP. mysql-client-4.0.26_1 Multithreaded SQL database (client) mysql-server-4.0.26_2 Multithreaded SQL database (server) I went to the folder /usr/ports/databases/mysql40-server/ and did a make clean install. Then I created the file /etc/my.cnf like fr# more my.cnf [mysqld] datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data socket=/tmp/mysql.sock [mysql.server] user=mysql basedir=/usr/local/bin/mysql I got stuck at this point. I have been reading online without luck. I do not even know how to start mysql. I hope you guys can point in the right directions. Thanks in advance.
