Confused with mySQL


i am confused with mSQL.

I want to download mySQL from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql-4.0.html but i dont know what file will fit on my OS (Redhat Linux 9)


I want RPM. I attempted to download Linux x86 RPM downloads (Server) but when i open that file, it says reading package header and after that, nothing happened.

pls help. thanks

Maybe you are installing it with the GUI (e.g. just clicking on it), and I have found that I get the same problem as you with most of the RPM's I download, so I much prefer to use the CLI...

Instead try this:

> Download the RPM

> Go to the Command Line (Terminal)

> Type "su root" and then enter your root password when prompted

> then type "rpm -ivh [the name of the package you downloaded]"

> Hit enter, and watch it do its thing

(It will alert you of any errors here much better as well)

just upgrade the MySQL:

rpm -Uvh the.package.rpm

how about --force --upgrade or whatever?

rpm --rebuild-database ??

perhaps the rpm database is corrupted?

You can always install the binary version (.tar.gz). Please consult http://www.linux-corner.net/linux/services/mysql.html for more information!

After restart:

Quote:
[root@server1 bin]# ./mysqld
Fatal error: Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!
040313 12:41:21 Aborting

040313 12:41:21 ./mysqld: Shutdown Complete

[root@server1 bin]#

It works but after i restart my computer, i can't start mySQL. How to start mySQL on boot time?
