Change From MS-Access To MySQL

I just changed from MS-Access to MySQL with PHP programming. MySQL is very very very convenient for me. There are a lot of tools to organise my database, not like MS-Access.

Oracle's Commercial Moves with MySQL are Drawing Scrutiny

When Oracle announced its intent to acquire Sun Microsystems, the very first question we asked was what would become of the open source MySQL database and Sun's record of openness with it. The general concensus around Oracle's plans was that the database giant would position MySQL as a way to onboard users to its commercial offerings. (Oracle offers an Enterprise edition.) There is now debate about the extent to which that is happening, especially because Oracle has just released three commercial extensions for MySQL.

So You Just Deleted Your Production Database - What Now


It doesn’t matter how it happened, it doesn’t matter why, blame can (and probably will) be placed later. What matters now is that your production MySQL database was just deleted from the filesystem while the MySQL daemon was running. The good news is that the server, somehow, is still running fine, and the system is still up. The bad news is that the directory where MySQL stores the database is now empty.

Take a deep breath, you are running Linux, here is what to do:

Marten Mickos Gives MySQL, Under Oracle, His Blessing

When Oracle announced its intent to acquire Sun Microsystems in 2009, one of the first questions asked in the open source community was what the fate of MySQL would be. After all, MySQL had spent years growing in popularity, largely driven by adoption at the departmental level in businesses and organizations, and many perceived it to be a pronounced open source threat to proprietary database systems like the ones Oracle had specialized in. There was even speculation that Oracle might be buying Sun partially to shut MySQL down. Now, Marten Mickos, the former CEO of MySQL says its code base is actually in fantastic shape.

What is the best method for installing MySQL on Ubuntu 10.10?

I've recently installed Ubuntu on 10.10 and decided to install MySQL so that I can do some LAMP programming. I've now done 3 separate installs of MySQL 5.5.11 and have yet to get it working. I had the most luck doing a binary install where you have to manually setup your environment but couldn't get mysqld to start successfully. I then decided to try out the package manager and the "atm-get install mysql-server" option and the results were much worse, as I got numerous installation errors. Can anyone tell me if they have successfully installed MySql on Ubuntu 10.10 and if so, what version and method.

Web Based Open Source Report Writer
