I probably have to re-enact it again because I do not
remember whether the
install failed or the server did not start up.
Having just /var/lib/mysql on a separate partition probably isn't the best
idea, you can't make a backup of that without backing up the logs too so it's
best to put them on the same filesystem. For a system that has mysqld as an
important part of the system functionality (which is most systems that have
MySQL running) I create a subvol or filesystem named /mysql.
semanage fcontext -a -t mysqld_db_t "/mysql(/.*)?"
restorecon -R -v /mysql
The above commands will give you the correct labeling for /mysql.
