I was looking for a way to store my mysql databases on a different partition than the default installation. I found this link and followed the steps.
However, after having changed the line
datadir = /var/lib/mysql in
datadir = /storage/mysql-data, I find myself unable to start the mysql service again:
pieter@foxbox:~$ sudo service mysql start start: Job failed to start
When I change the
datadir back to the standard value, it does work again. Why? What is the problem with the solution in the link?
I'm on Ubuntu 12.04, 32bit
