mySQL Permissons

Postby josh100 » 28. March 2006 23:24

Hey, i've had great success with xampp on windows, but i'm having a bit of trouble with it on linux, I think it has something to do with permissions.

My problem is, I can't create any new tables in phpmyadmin, I just keep getting returned the error

MySQL said:
#1 - Can't create/write to file '/root/tmp/#sql_1c03_0.MYI' (Errcode: 13)

Anyone have any ideas?

It's probably something really simple

Thanks :)

indeed, it is....
as the error tells you, check if the directory /root/tmp exists and is writable... best would be to switch to the default mysql-dir and NOT run mysql as root!!!!!! create a user called mysql and run mysql with this new user. read more about it at for example...
