Im using BootUp Manager (bum) to control auto-start processes on Ubuntu 12.04. I have stopped Apache2 from starting automatically using bum. The problem is, today I have found that sql server is always running in the back. I can not alter auto-start settings for MYSQL from bum.
Why I can not see any entry for MySQL in bum, moreover does sql needed by the Ubuntu OS itself for its own processes ? If not needed by the OS itself ,then is it safe to disable MySQL and restart it whenever I need it ? How should I do that ?
Is there any gui application for doing so ? Upto now Im using this command for start/stop apache2 and mysql
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start/stop/restart sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start/stop/restart or sudo start/stop mysql service mysql status
Is it possible to create a .py file which add gui functionality to this.
