How to start and stop mysql?

I need to start and stop mysql, and I've only figured out how to stop it.
I need to start it (not rebooting) so that I can temporarily use different
options. In my case, I need --skip-grant-tables.

This just starts mysql the normal way. But the OP said, that he needs to start it temporarily with self specified options.

The following is how mysql is normally started (this is taken from /etc/init.d/mysql):

# Start MySQL!
su - mysql -s /bin/sh -c "/usr/bin/mysqld_safe > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

So the OP could use this, modify it as needed.
