Why no Plesk buttons for mysql service?

    Exactly as it says up there. I can't seem to find mysql in the service list (to restart/stop/start it) and theres no mysql configuration in the "services" section of the server page.

    Just wondering if there is one somewhere or a reason for it to be missing.

    Probably because Plesk itself relies on mysql, so if it is stopeed, you wont be able to see the control panel at all.

    Good point, but there can be sometimes where you need to restart/rehash mysql. Also a global mysql configuration would be nice, like client/mysql interaction.

    Log into the server via ssh and type:
    /etc/init.d/mysqld restart

    Also, way back in the day, when I still worked at Plesk, I requested an admin version of phpMyAdmin to be setup in the SERVER section. This was during PSA6 development. Still hasn't been implemented....

    You could always install it yourself though (that's what I do), then it wouldn't be dependent on the control panel.

    Yeah good idea. Although what user/pass would psa have set in mysql when it was installing?

    On PSA installs, plesk uses what is normally the "root" mysql account. It is replaced with the "admin" user (ie, the one you login to plesk with).

    I would imagine the new version of Plesk for *nix is going to copy the Windows version.

    Plesk 7.5 for Windows uses two seperate installs of MySQL - one for clients, one for plesk itself. It also has a root/admin based phpMyAdmin interface for the client side database.
