I have an experience of setting up and running MySQL on Windows. It is really easy. I just downloaded
.zip, unpacked it in
C:\MySQL\bin to PATH and then ran the server with the command:
C:\> mysqld --console
All the databases were stored in
And I want to do the same on Xubuntu 13.04 (but kubuntu-desktop). But I don't understand how. Linux version of MySQL is different.
Here are my steps:
I downloaded MySQL Community Server from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/. So I got this file:
Then I unpacked it to
And instead of
/bin directory I got 7 files there. And I don't know what to do with them now:
path: /opt/MySQL-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm-bundle/ MySQL-client-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-devel-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-embedded-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-server-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-shared-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-shared-compat-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm MySQL-test-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm
I suspect that
MySQL-server-5.7.1_m11-4.linux_glibc2.5.i386.rpm is the MySQL DB server as I ran on Windows. But how to install it? How to run it? I don't want MySQL server to start automaticly on system boot. I want to start it manually as I did on Windows.
What do I need to do to install MySQL the same way I used it on Windows?
