Autostart MySQL on Ubuntu

When I setup a new VPS I’m always forgetting to set MySQL to auto start on boot

Heres the command:

sudo update-rc.d mysql defaults
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/mysql missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see <>
Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/mysql ...
/etc/rc0.d/K20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc1.d/K20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc6.d/K20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc2.d/S20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc3.d/S20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc4.d/S20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
/etc/rc5.d/S20mysql -> ../init.d/mysql

Info on how to do this in CentOS/RedHat
