I just wanted to give Percona DB 8.x on CentOS 7 a try and installed it from the yum repository provided by Percona. I’ve searched around, but couldn’t find mysqld_safe. Is this a packaging bug or intentional? (I don’t want to start it from systemd).
Hello McA, thanks for your question.
Our standard approach is to use systemd, so mysqld_safe is normally not included in the packages.
I’ve asked the dev team and they could add it to the package, but if you’d like them to do that have requested a JIRA report so that they can integrate it into their workflow. If you’d like to do that they can take a look at adding it? https://jira.percona.com
The benefit of doing that is that you’ll be alerted with progress updates, too.
thank you for coming back to me with this issue so fast. Just filed a Jira ticket PS-5834
