I'm postig this question on the newbie forum cause i'm a n00b. Duh!
So anyways, I'm trying to install a MySQL server on my Fedora Core 2, and uh... I have no idea what to do. I've been looking through these forums, honesty, for MORE THAN TWO HOURS, and I still haven't found out what to do. I tried running the RPM (MySQL-server-4.0.21.i386) through the gui by using an app called, "install", or something like that. It told me it had installed it, so i tried looking for the folder where it was installed in, and couldn't find it. So bright little me decides to use the consol. It would take too long for me to tell everything I did (and i don't even remember half of what i did). So please help a brother out and break it down real simple (not too simple, atleast i have a vague idea on how to use the console) and help me out and tell me what to do. Thanks so much
If you download both the server and client .rpm files (MySQL-server-4.0.21.i386 and MySQL-client-4.0.21.i386) you can install the complete package (even configured to start the MySql server each time you start linux) by opening the console and doing the following;
for some odd reason, i used the command,
#rpm -i MySQL-server-4.0.21.i386.rpm
and it worked
I was updating fedora, so that might have given me some stuff that i need.
