The mysql service is not enabled in BootUp-manager, yet it is working after system starts. Is it awaken by another service? How to determine what causes that?

    What is BootUp-manager? What version of Ubuntu are you using? Have you used this procedure? – Lucio Dec 22 '13 at 0:19
  • Package bum - BootUp-manager provides graphical services on/off and autostart managing. – Esamo Dec 22 '13 at 0:25

AFAIK MySQL differs from other services. For instance:

sudo update-rc.d nginx disable # Works
sudo update-rc.d mysql disable # Does not

I don't know how BootUp Manager (bum) works, but it wouldn't surprise me that it is not capable to manage MySQL.

To disable MySQL from startup you will have to manually do it, for that see: How to stop mysql from running at boot time?

Again, no sure if this is a bug on that tool or not (no sources for say so).
