What is the command to start MySQL service under Linux OS?

I installed MySQL under the '/' directory as: 'mysql-5.6.19-linux-glibc2.5-x86_64'. I navigate to the bin directory as I do under Windows7 and try to start mysqld - if its anything like Win7 (which it is probably not) then I need to run mysqld first.

I eventually tried:

/bin/mysqld start

and received:

[Warning] TIMESTAMP with implicit DEFAULT value is deprecated. Please use --

explicit_defaults_for_timestamp server option (see documentation for more details).

What distribution/version are you running and how did you install mysql?

So mysqld is the server and mysql is the command line client. If the server started successfully then port 3306 would be open and the client could connect.
