Hi all,

I'm tring to create a symbolic link from /var/db/mysql to
/usr/local/mysql/db/mysql so that my mysql db's are put in

I've done:-

ln -s /var/db/mysql  /usr/local/mysql/db/mysql

but it doesn't seem to have worked, as when I do:-

ln -l /var/db/mysql

it indicates no link

does anyone know where I might be going wrong?

thanks in advance!
