Currently i installed ubunot on ubunto 4.4, and using following commands i can see mysql, mysqld running

 ps -ef | grep mysql
 ps -ef | grep mysqld

but when I run, netstat i don't see mysql and 3306 anywhere. in my.cnf file, i have given my ip and port is 3306.

also when i run this command

sudo netstat -tap | grep mysql

i don't see anything and commands

I needed to run the mysql 5 on port 3306 and on ip=x.x.x.x for remotely accessible

Looking forward to your reply
