Description Dnix 2005-11-14 08:58:49 UTC
There are some options very usefull that we want to use to start mysql. for
example, one of the big problems now that the <4.1 and the 4.1 or better version
have different passwd management structure, we need to have the possibility to
start the server with --old-password.
Something like /etc/conf.d/apache2 can be the right solution.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a mysql server 4.1 on a machine
2. connect to that server with a mysql client 4.0
3. enjoy :)

Actual Results:  
you got a mysql system error

Expected Results:  
log in lovely

May be it will be added in a future, but to manage slotted/chrooted version of

"old-password" password and mostly all other server startup option may be added
to /etc/mysql/my.cnf file (under the [mysqld] section).
