The 5.1 was installed and started just once, and then got used in production -- now I am scared that if the box ever reboots My SQL won't come back up (and I'll be fired).Please use ''--general_log'/'--general_log_file'' instead.

When I later rebooted, the server did not start automatically, and now I can't start it: [[email protected] mysql]# /sbin/service mysql start Starting My SQL.Rechecked and removed everything connected to My SQL from the box, reinstalled, no error: o) Removed everything o) Reinstall: [[email protected] Joro]# rpm -i My SQL-client-5.1.25-0.glibc23.x86_64My SQL-server-5.1.25-0.glibc23.x86_64PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE My SQL root USER !The latest information about My SQL is available at Support My SQL by buying support/licenses from Starting My SQL.[ OK ] [[email protected] Joro]# mysql -uroot Welcome to the My SQL monitor.
