I just made the transition to 5.3 from 4.x and I am unclear on the the
new rcNG way of starting locally installed services such as MySQL,
Samba etc. I did read the manual pages on rc.d and rcNG.
I just installed MySQL from ports and would like it to start
automatically on boot.
The manual page for rcNG is a bit unclear for starting local userland
services such as mysql. A working example for a common application
such as MysQL, Postgresql, or Samba would certainly be useful.
My question is:
Do I still start MysQL the old way with the script in
Do I create an entry in /etc/rc.conf.local with "mysql_enable=YES"?
Also, if using the rcNG method, do I have to copy the mysql-server.sh
script to /etc/rc.d/mysql or will rcNG make use of default
