OS : Redhat
I try to launch the mysql database after a fresh installation. The problem is I am not root on this server and my user have not the permission to write in the /var/lib folder.
When I try to launch the mysqld, I have passed lot of options to mysqld_safe command line but mysqld always need to write in the /var/lib folder :/
Command line :
bin/mysqld_safe --basedir=/tools/mysql/mysql --log-error=/tools/mysql/mysql/log \ --datadir=/tools/mysql/mysql/data --defaults-file=/tools/mysql/mysql/my.cnf \ --tmpdir=/tools/mysql/mysql/tmp
error log :
130918 16:43:23 mysqld_safe Logging to '/tools/mysql/mysql/log.err'. mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/lib/mysql': Permission denied chown: invalid user: `mysql' chmod: cannot access `/var/lib/mysql': No such file or directory* 130918 16:43:23 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /tools/mysql/mysql/data 130918 16:43:25 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid ended
Anyone know how can I ask to mysqld to do not write in the /var/lib directory ?
