Original post was about CentOS (Edit: actually, we don’t know what the original distro was! it was yet another comment that identified their distro as CentOS!). It’s not a big deal, I was just confused (the database landscape is one of the areas of real difference across the various distributions we support).
I mean does it work? When you start/stop mysql from within (using the buttons) the Webmin MySQL module, does it do what it is supposed to? That’s the first step to making sure the configuration Webmin has for the database is correct (it can still be wrong if the config file path is wrong, maybe some other things…I’m working from memory here).
