Yeah, mysql is a database. You might already have it installed on your system as it usually comes with Redhat. If not you can probably grab it from there.

More information with excellent docs are found at

but i'm now running httpd and php compiled from source code.
i'm downloading MySQL Control Center (at 40% download now i'm using dialup)

MySQL came from Redhat9 cd is rpms and it earlier version, can it interoperate with current version of httpd and MySQL and also the current MySQL Control Center?
