> call a shell script from MySQL Trigger/Procedure.

Terrible idea, opens a gaping security hole.

Yes, it's possible eg in SQL Server, but to harden a database before it goes into production, you have to close off such security holes.

It's not allowed in MySQL Triggers unless you write and compile a C/C++ UDF for it into your copy of the server.
