I'm trying to ensure an app starts on boot up but after MySQL has been started. I can't however locate where MySQL is being started.
If I do a chkconfig, it says MySQL is off, yet I can readily access my databases with phpmyadmin.
If I look at my boot log, I can see it says MySQL Server is started, right after Apache2 is started.
In my rc5.d directory, I only see a symbolic link for Apache2 but nothing for MySQL. The startup script for MySQL appears in /etc/init.d.
rc.local has got nothing in it but comments.
So it appears to me like it's being run on startup, but not as a service. But I have next to no knowledge of Linux so don't put too much belief in that.
I would have originally installed MySQL via apt-get.
Where else can I look to find out where it is being started?
