Setting Runlevel for MySQL in Fedora 5
I had lots of fun trying to get MySQL to work properly in Fedora 5. The problem I had was that when a user logged out, MySQL would stop running. You need to set the Runlevel to 3 that the database server will continue running when a user logs out.
The default settings for MySQL in Fedora 5 are incorrect. You can view the runlevel with chkconfig –list mysqld. Runlevel 5 is set on as a default and everything else is off.
The command below will fix the Runlevel in MySQL:
chkconfig –level 3 mysqld on
