I have a server that is rapidly filling the var partition with a MySQL database. I'd like to move it to a subdirectory somewhere under /usr.

Is there a document that would outline a "best practices" approach to doing this? My first instinct was to stop the mysqld, do a mv on /var/db to /var/db2 to rename it, copy the data to a /usr/local/db folder and alter permissions on it to match /var/db, then make a softlink between /usr/local/db and /var/db and restart mysqld so mysqld wouldn't need any reconfiguring and everything, I would *think*, should keep working...only now it will be working off a far more spacious partition.
