I'd like mysql to start on boot but it does not, because I had removed rc.something (don't remember what was it) previously when I wanted it to not start automatically.

Now in order to run it I need to run:

sudo service mysql start

Each time that I power on my computer, which is annoying.

How to resolve this?

The command you are looking for is probably

sudo update-rc.d mysql defaults

/etc/init.d/mysql

Default script:

#!/bin/sh -e
# upstart-job
#
# Symlink target for initscripts that have been converted to Upstart.

set -e

INITSCRIPT="$(basename "$0")"
JOB="${INITSCRIPT%.sh}"

if [ "$JOB" = "upstart-job" ]; then
    if [ -z "$1" ]; then
        echo "Usage: upstart-job JOB COMMAND" 1>&2
        exit 1
    fi

    JOB="$1"
    INITSCRIPT="$1"
    shift
else
    if [ -z "$1" ]; then
        echo "Usage: $0 COMMAND" 1>&2
        exit 1
    fi
fi

COMMAND="$1"
shift


if [ -z "$DPKG_MAINTSCRIPT_PACKAGE" ]; then
        ECHO=echo
else
        ECHO=:
fi

$ECHO "Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)"
$ECHO "utility, e.g. service $INITSCRIPT $COMMAND"

# Only check if jobs are disabled if the currently _running_ version of
# Upstart (which may be older than the latest _installed_ version)
# supports such a query.
#
# This check is necessary to handle the scenario when upgrading from a
# release without the 'show-config' command (introduced in
# Upstart for Ubuntu version 0.9.7) since without this check, all
# installed packages with associated Upstart jobs would be considered
# disabled.
#
# Once Upstart can maintain state on re-exec, this change can be
# dropped (since the currently running version of Upstart will always
# match the latest installed version).

UPSTART_VERSION_RUNNING=$(initctl version|awk '{print $3}'|tr -d ')')

if dpkg --compare-versions "$UPSTART_VERSION_RUNNING" ge 0.9.7
then
    initctl show-config -e "$JOB"|grep -q '^  start on' || DISABLED=1
fi

  • Thanks but it give this warning: update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/mysql missing LSB information... System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/mysql already exist. Is it ok? – wbad Feb 6 '15 at 12:28
  • You probably also have a bug in the /etc/init.d/mysql script. Make a backup and copy the version I post into it (its a default mysql). – Rinzwind Feb 6 '15 at 12:46
  • or better: put my version in a file and do a 'diff' between this and what you have to see if they are different. – Rinzwind Feb 6 '15 at 12:47
