Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions.
First time I had to do this I did the link suggestion that other people have posted. But you have another cleaner option w/ MySQL. There is a my.cnf file where you can set a DATADIR variable (I think that's what it's called) to set the path for the database files. Then you can point that to /usr/mysql or whatever. Just read up on my.cnf and how it's used for more info. It either goes in /etc or /usr/local/etc I think. The reason I'm vague is that I don't do it that way myself. I use the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ scripts (which I don't think were used in 4.5?) so I have an option right within the mysql-server.sh script there for setting the datadir (DB_DIR). _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
