How do I install MySQL on RedHat?





ammonkc
I'm trying to install mysql on a redhat box. I've never install mysql on redhat ( or linux for that matter) before. I've done it many times on mac osx with binaries before. can anyone tell me how the process goes to install on redhat from source? or point me toward a good tutorial. thanks

What is redhat box?

I was simply refering to a redhat computer. sorry, shouldn't have been using slang like that

you can use mysql binary rpms for redhat.

Code:
 yum groupinstall "MySQL Database"


Or you can use xampp. No need to install. Just extract and start using.

That's now say 10 days that i have ADSL at home.
Before, I had internet at work only (I'm in Algeria)
Anyway, I use redhat fedora core (FC4) and in order to install soft
I used to download them in RPM files or source code tar.gz and then take
them to home and install them this way:

1) for RPMs (make a search in [url]rpmfind.com[/url]
and when you found the rpm you need just download it
and type

Code:

rpm -ivh your_downlaoaded_package.rpm


2) If you didn't find a convenient rpm, download the souce code
from the software producer (here [url]mysql.com[/url]) and decompress it in a directory say /home/temp

and then go to that directory and generally it's sufficient to type these commands:

./configure
make
make install

all these commands and much more help are actually available in the readme file shiped with the tar.gz you downloaded
