MySQL module S153
Sourcing, Running and Configuring MySQL
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module S153. This topic is presented on public courses Deploying LAMP - Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP, Linux Web Server, MySQL, Deploying Java Applications on Linux / Unix

MySQL is a service that's provided by host computers, similar to the way they provide services such as ftp. Such services aren't there and running when you take a new computer out of the box; you need to obtain the latest version of the server software, set up configuration information so that it's suitable for your particular requirements, and actually run the service.
