Every time I restart the MySQL server, the event scheduler gets dissabled.

I can't find any variable in the my.cnf to enable this, does anyone know a solution ?

Take a look at the event_scheduler option.

You can start it with:

mysql> SET GLOBAL event_scheduler = ON;

You have to add:


to the /etc/my.cnf under the [mysqld] section for permanent.
