Hello there,

I have Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise 10 and I would like to know the best and safest approach to installing the MySQL which comes with the package on to a separate mount point on our SAN.

What are the detailed steps?

Do I:

1. First, just install it as is (default)

2. stop mysql

3. create a mount point on the SAN

4. copy what is on /var/lib/mysql to the SAN mount point I just created

5. define/configure the permissions

6. makes changes in my.cnf to point to the SAN mount point (including the log and tmp location)

7. make an entry in /etc/fstab to the new mount point

8. and finally, restart MySQL?

is this it in a nutshell?

What happens when i create a new database? it should go to the new mount point, correct?
