I was told they were like "shortcuts" in windows, but I am not exactly sure if I did it right.
I have a MySQL database on my hard drive 1, under /var/lib/mysql/temp
but I want it to be located on drive 2, which can be accessed by
cd /drive2, and I want every update and everything to occur on hard drive 2.
So what I did was:
ln -s /drive2/temp /var/lib/mysql/temp
and it seems to work, but everywhere I read it seems as if the syntax I used should have been the other way around.
Did I do it right?
