mysqld_multi [--config-file=...] [--example] [--help] [--log=...] [--mysqladmin=...] [--mysqld=...] [--no-log] [--password=...] [--tcp-ip] [--user=...] [--version] DESCRIPTION
mysqld_multi --config-file=... Alternative config file. NOTE: This will not affect this program's own options (group [mysqld_multi]), but only groups [mysqld#]. Without this option everything will be searched from the ordinary my.cnf file. --example Give an example of a config file. --help Print this help and exit. --log=... Log file. Full path to and the name for the log file. NOTE: If the file exists, everything will be appended. --mysqladmin=... mysqladmin binary to be used for a server shutdown. --mysqld=... mysqld binary to be used. Note that you can give safe_mysqld to this option also. The options are passed to mysqld. Just make sure you have mysqld in your environment variable PATH or fix safe_mysqld. --no-log Print to stdout instead of the log file. By default the log file is turned on. --password=... Password for user for mysqladmin. --tcp-ip Connect to the MySQL server(s) via the TCP/IP port instead of the UNIX socket. This affects stopping and reporting. If a socket file is missing, the server may still be running, but can be accessed only via the TCP/IP port. By default connecting is done via the UNIX socket. --user=... MySQL user for mysqladmin. --version Print the version number and exit. NOTE
