Hello again,

 Did some more research. I have a system running FreeBSD  6.2-RELEASE-p12 with
an earlier version on mysql (mysql-server-5.0.41). Same thing, the
mysqld_multi and mysqlmanager
is missing. Once again do i miss something? If yes what is it?

 And of course if there are other possibilities to run 2 mysqld
instances on one server
please let me know.

thank you and a great day,
