I am trying to mount my windows ntfs partition under Ubuntu 10.10 containing MySQL data folder (from windows) in /media/mysql/data.In my windows I have installed Sokkit (PHP+Apache+MySQL). In my Ubuntu I have installed Xampp and in the my.cnf I have pointed the datadir to /media/mysql/data. Now when I try to start the Xampp service MySQL fails to start.
Can you please tell me what could be the possible cause ?
I am using the following mount command.
mount -t ntfs -o defaults,no_root_squash /dev/sda1 /media/
Is there any other way to access my windows partition apart from mounting the partition ?
