MYSQL and Red Hat 9.0 Linux


Need MYSQL Administrator to back up files that are on my server (linux) machine. Have been using the following procedures.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.3. Installing Under Linux

MySQL Administrator runs on Linux machines that have a graphical desktop installed. It is designed to run under the Gnome desktop, but you may also use other desktops, such as KDE, as long as GTK2 is installed. It has been tested on Linux kernel versions 2.4 and 2.6, but it should also run on other versions, and even on a number of Unix-like operating systems.

To install MySQL Administrator, first download the installation tarball. The tarball file is called mysql-administrator-version-linux.tar.gz, where version indicates the MySQL Administrator version (for example 1.0.12).

To see all files in the tarball, run this command:


shell> tar -tzf mysql-administrator-version-linux.tar.gz


To install MySQL Administrator, run this command:


shell> tar --directory=/opt -xzvf mysql-administrator-version-linux.tar.gz


This installs the application binary in /opt/mysql-administrator/bin. Change into that directory and run mysql-administrator to start the application.



To install MySQL Administrator, run this command:


shell> tar --directory=/opt -xzvf mysql-administrator-version-linux.tar.gz


This installs the application binary in /opt/mysql-administrator/bin. Change into that directory and run mysql-administrator to start the application.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RESULTS:

1. Read all files successfully using, "$ tar -tzf mysql-administrator-1.0.22a-linux.tar.gz".

2. Attempted to install MySQL Administrator using,

"# tar --directory=/opt -xzvf mysql-administrator-1.0.22a-linux.tar.gz". Looks like all files installed successfully.

QUESTION:

How do I run mysql-administrator and which file do I use, mysql- administrator (546 bytes) or something out of mysql-administrator-bin?

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

Yru

i dont know mysql administrator but usually u can type:
/path/to/mysqladministrator/bin/mysqladministrator &
in the shell. probably the executable file is in the bin directory.

in case u get a "permission denied error"
maybe u have to make it executable
chmod 0755 /path/to/bin/file
