MySQL Background job

Hiya,

Recently Iíve run a few scripts in the foreground, but have realised later they should of been better nohup'd and placed in the background. I understand how to change a foreground job into a background one, but how would put the job into the nohup state?

Thanks

rdbooth,

I don't know that there is a way to do so unless you are running Solairs 9 or > Solaris 9 supports a nohup -p where you specify a running PID, but I am afraid you may be out of luck.

What OS are you on?

Cheers,

Keith
