A weblog about open source development, law, technology, politics and the like.

Just a note...
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !
To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
/sw/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/sw/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h Gantrist.local password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd /sw ; /sw/bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with the benchmarks in the 'sql-bench' directory:
cd sql-bench ; perl run-all-tests

And remember it! Elsewhere you have to make a dirty hack [1].
