Check mysqld daemon with Applescript?

Is it possible to test to see if the mysqld daemon is running before issuing a command to shut it down?

I have tried the processes, but mysqld does not show up.

Is there a Unix command besides ps that could be used?

Thanks for any help,


mysqld is run by the mysql user. Try something like this:

	do shell script "ps -U mysql | grep mysqld"
	-- Put something here to stop mysqld
on error
	-- If grep doesn't find anything, it will cause an error. This should mean that mysqld is not running.
end try

That’s it, thanks…
