Hello, I just installed Fedora 19 two days back. I have also installed MySQL Server 5.6.14. Now, every time I start my machine, I have to manually start MySQL Server using mysqld_safe. Can anybody tell me how to start MySQL Server automatically at system boot in Fedora 19. Thanks in advance.

Sorry, none of the commands are working for me. I acquired root privilege by su -. Then I did systemctl enable mysqld.service. I got the message "Failed to issue method call: No such file or directory". What am I doing wrong?

How have you installed mysql server?

I installed it via rpm. Used rpm -i MySQL-server-5.6.14-1.linux_glibc2.5.x86_64.rpm

So, not from the Fedora repositories? You'll have to read the documentation that the website that you downloaded off provides. All the answers/comments here are given assuming you use packages from the fedora repositories.

Hi: Old school way

sudo chkconfig mysqld on

New way

sudo systemctl enable mysqld.service

Kind regards

Are changes made by chkconfig and systemctl persistent?

Absolutely. chkconfig 'service name' on makes the changes persistent while systemctl enable is the new way of accomplishing the same task using systemd. Only systemctl start is not persistent...

A read of the systemd documentation is suggested. man systemctl is a good place to start.
