i have recently changed my OS from windows to Linux. So im quite new to the linux world. Im trying to publish a website. So i have installed apache, mysql and php. Apache seems to work fine, but i guess im having some problems configuring mysql. when i try to start it, it throws up an erro. im using fedora core 6 and here is what i did. i gave the command to start mysql, but it failed.
Initializing MySQL database: Neither host 'localhost.localdomain' nor 'localhost' could be looked up with
Please configure the 'hostname' command to return a correct hostname.
If you want to solve this at a later stage, restart this script with
the --force option
Do i have to setup anything else for this to work?
when i ran #ps -sx command, the isnt anything related to mysql. I cheked weather i have installed mysql properly. here is the result when i searched for them.
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i mysql
As i have mentioned before, im very new for linux. So, can someone guide me through this to get it up and running. I would really appreciate that.
