I need to start up
mysqld with command line options as from here:
I normally do
sudo service mysqld start, but passing the option as
sudo service mysqld start --skip-grant-tables does not seem to work.
Alternatively I have tried starting as a daemon,
sudo mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
But it seems to terminate too soon:
131101 04:59:57 mysqld_safe Logging to '/var/lib/mysql/vagrant.example.com.err'.
131101 04:59:57 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
131101 05:00:03 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/lib/mysql/vagrant.example.com.pid ended
My last option seems to specify the option in
/etc/my.cnf instead, but is there any way to do it via the command line?
