My mysql installation was screwed up. I uninstalled and installed it multiple times. But I kept getting a hang or a error "cant connect". I now finally have it running with
sudo -u mysql mysqld. How do I get mysqld to run at startup, and why do I need to run it as user
mysql. Can I change it to run as root ?
