To run MySQL on a system you need both the server and the client software installed and running. For SuSE, you should have the following packages installed in YAST:


There are additional packages you can/should install as well...

You can find all required information on running it from commandline at

If you're new to Linux and/or MySQL I would recommend the use of Webmin. This program enables you to administer a lot of nifty stuff using your favourite webbrowser.

For example you can administer MySQL and Apache through Webmin. A great way to get to know those programs quickly, without all the hassle of command line commands.

Good luck.
