MySQL has always kept their databases in /var/lib/mysql. At least on RedHat
and Mandrake.

Is it possible for the ht://Dig team to work with the major distribution
producers, like Red Hat and Mandrake, so that ht://Dig would be included on
the distribution CD? I'm always disappointed when I don't find ht://Dig on
the distribution CD.
