6.1.2 Service Control

The Administration - Startup / Shutdown tab enables you to perform the following service-control actions:

  • View the Startup Message Log.

  • Start up and shut down the MySQL instance.

  • View the current status of the MySQL instance.

With a valid connection established, and the connection tab for it open, you can access the control actions from either the Navigator panel or by clicking Server and then Startup/Shutdown from the menu. The following figure shows an example of the Administration - Startup / Shutdown tab with the database server instance running and the Stop Server and Bring Offline buttons displayed.
