Linux/Windows MySQL data share
I am dual booting Windows 2000 Professional and Fedora Core 4.
On Windows I am running Miscrosoft IIS, PHP 4.3.9 and MySQL Server 4.1
On Fedora I am running KDE 3.4, Apache, PHP 4.3.9 and MySQL 4.1
I wrote a small php script that saves small amounts of text data on my mysql server.
I wanted to be able to access this data from both windows and fedora. In windows I made sure my installation was in a fat32 directory on a secondary drive. I mounted that drive to /mnt/D.
I then ran
ln -s /mnt/D/MySQL/data/cimdat /var/lib/MySQL/cimdat
When I open the script in fireFox via:
I get no problems, my data comes up fine!
when I try to update or add any data I get the error that the table has been opened as read only.
I opened my file manager, navigated to /var/lib/MySQL right clicked on cimdata and selected properties, open the permissions tab, all my permissioins are set to read & write.
I tried again to update data and the table is still opening as read only.
The script works fine on windows. so I am wondering if my symlink needs to be set up differently or if there is another way to share MySQL data.
Thanks in advance guys,
