    stop mysql from running at startup 

    My Linux box was running mysql from the start and I did have no clue. It was not in my startup applications list, neither in my init.d folders.

    But whenever i did nmap of localhost, i could see the mysql port open. I could kill mysql service, need to kill it multiple times, only then it used to die.

    I even installed “sysv-rc-conf” so that i could stop it at run levels, but it was not running at any runlevels. I then did “update-rc.d mysql disable”. Which didn’t work either.

    Later I found that there was a file called “mysql.conf” in /etc/init/ folder. I renamed the file to mysql.conf.disabled and it worked out. Hope this will help others who have the same problem.
