thank you, Mike
I appreciate the e-mail. Turns out the A to the Q I had was posted in the D.w.a forum some time ago, and I just had to find it, haha. But what was happening was, I wasn't using
cd to get to where I needed to be before issuing the command.
So, that's what happened.
Now that I am deep into the WF config section in the terminal, I have everything squared away OK except it is not connecting to the MySQL database, and I am reading the error logs (which seems to be a hobby of mine these days), and it has something to do with port 3306 (apparently that is the default MySQL port). Every other piece of info and configuration in the process is A-OK (I am pretty sure), but it just will not connect with MySQL.
So, as of now, I have gone blind on StackOverflow, Linux help forums, Linode and MySQL FAQ, etc etc., and I am starving and exhausted, so I am going to eat, then sleep, then get this stuff done tomorrow evening.
Hope you're well. :)
