    Question MySQL Error on TeamSpeak 3 Boot Script

    Hi Guys!
    Whilst trying to move my Teamspeak 3 server from one machine to another, I've ran into a sting of issues. The forums have helped solve my first two issues (which were a libmysqlclient error and a MySQL socket error). However I'm now experiencing a strange error on my automatic boot script (which launches TS3 when the machine starts).

    I'm using a Ubuntu Linux 10.04. This is the startup init.d script itself.

    # chkconfig: 2345 99 10
    # description: Starts or Stops TeamSpeak 3 Server
    cd $TS3
    case "$1" in
    su $USER -c "$STARTSCRIPT stop"
    su $USER -c "$STARTSCRIPT status"
    echo "Usage $0 start|stop|status"
    When the server boots it creates the pid file in the TS3 directory. However it appears to crash with the following error instantly.

    2012-06-02 13:58:16.201675|INFO    |ServerLibPriv |   | TeamSpeak 3 Server 3.0.2 (2012-02-29 05:39:32)

    2012-06-02 13:58:16.773392|CRITICAL|ServerLibPriv |   | Server() DatabaseError
    To make it stranger, if I run this command...

    sudo /etc/init.d/teamspeak start
    It starts perfectly without error. I therefore assume it's not a MySQL issue but rather an issue with the startup configuration? I'm at a loss with this particular error due to my inexperience. Hopefully someone will be able to point out an error.

    Thanks in advance,

    Simple, when the TS3 Init.d Script launches the MySQL Server is not launched yet, hence a connection cannot be established. When you instantly run the init Script yourself then the MySQL Server is already there and it is working just fine.
    You need to make sure the MySQL Server is launched before your TS3 Script runs.

    I had my suspicions that it was something to do with the boot order. How would I go about ensuring Teamspeak starts after MySQL?
    Thanks for your help.
