Excerpts from this Manual

23.8.7.65 mysql_shutdown()

int mysql_shutdown(MYSQL *mysql, enum mysql_enum_shutdown_level shutdown_level)

Description

Asks the database server to shut down. The connected user must have the SHUTDOWN privilege. MySQL servers support only one type of shutdown; shutdown_level must be equal to SHUTDOWN_DEFAULT. Dynamically linked executables which have been compiled with older versions of the libmysqlclient headers and call mysql_shutdown() need to be used with the old libmysqlclient dynamic library.

The shutdown process is described in Section 5.1.15, “The Server Shutdown Process”.

Return Values

Zero for success. Nonzero if an error occurred.
