If you use the init.d script on Ubuntu, e.g.
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart
you may get this message:
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service mysql restart
Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities,
e.g. stop mysql ; start mysql. The restart(8) utility is also available.
mysql start/running, process 25974
