I usually installed rpm package whatever software I used.However,this time I want to install a tarball file of MySQL 4.0.12 on my other linux box.
Let me show you how I attempted to install this.
1.Download the tarball from mysql.com.
2.Place the tarball file at /usr/local/src(As Wrox PHP 4 book tell me)
3.Extract it with tar -xzf MySQL4.0.......tar.gz
4.Change directory with cd MySQL......
5.And do ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
6.The problem occured like this:
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from mysql-standard..../data
And it freezed till I press Ctrl-C.I've tried to reinstall it but no luck.
I am a
on installing tarball file because it's so confusing to me.
I prefer using rpm.However,I would like to learn how to install it with tarball.
Any suggestions are most appreciated!
