mysqld_multi(1)                 MySQL database                 mysqld_multi(1)

       mysqld_multi   - is meant for managing several mysqld processes running
       in(1,8) different UNIX sockets and TCP/IP ports.

       mysqld_multi [OPTIONS] {start|stop|report} [GNR,GNR,GNR...]

       mysqld_multi  [--config-file=...]   [--example]  [--help]   [--log=...]
       [--mysqladmin=...]     [--mysqld=...]     [--no-log]   [--password=...]
       [--tcp-ip] [--user=...]  [--version]


              Alternative config(1,5) file. NOTE: This will not  affect  this  pro-
              grams  own  options  (group  [mysqld_multi]),  but  only groups
              [mysqld#]. Without this option everything will be searched  from
              the ordinary my.cnf file.

              Give an example of a config(1,5) file.

       --help Print this help and exit.

              Log  file.  Full path to and the name for the log file. NOTE: If
              the file(1,n) exists, everything will be appended.

              mysqladmin binary to be used for a server shutdown.

              mysqld binary to be used. Note that you can give mysqld_safe  to
              this  option  also.  The options are passed to mysqld. Just make
              sure you have mysqld in(1,8) your environment variable  PATH  or  fix

              Print to stdout instead of the log file. By default the log file(1,n)
              is turned on.

              Password for user for mysqladmin.

              Connect to the MySQL server(s) via the TCP/IP  port  instead  of
              the  UNIX  socket.  This  affects  stopping  and reporting. If a
              socket(2,7,n) file(1,n) is missing, the server may still be running, but can
              be  accessed  only via the TCP/IP port. By default connecting is
              done via the UNIX socket.

              MySQL user for mysqladmin.

              Print the version(1,3,5) number and exit.
