Description Dmitry V. Levin 2008-03-11 21:51:46 MSK

"Before MySQL 4.0, mysqld_safe is named safe_mysqld. To preserve backward
compatibility, MySQL binary distributions include safe_mysqld as a
symbolic link to mysqld_safe until MySQL 5.1."


"To preserve backward compatibility with older versions of MySQL, MySQL
binary distributions still include safe_mysqld as a symbolic link to
mysqld_safe. However, you should not rely on this because it is removed
as of MySQL 5.1."
