MySQL 5.6.2 — getting started

MySQL 5.6.2 is available for your evaluation at Labs.MySQL.Com

MySQL 5.6.2

MySQL 5.6.2 ready to go

in three flavors — InnoDB-Memcached, New Performance Schema, or multi-threaded slave. Remember, these servers are for evaluation purposes and not for production. I downloaded the InnoDB-Memecached version on a Fedora system and the New Performance Schema on a Ubuntu system. Both downloads were the pre-built generic binaries.

Installation will be familiar to anyone who has installed the binary sever before and is covered in detail at Installing MySQL from Generic Binaries on Unix/Linux

shell> groupadd mysql
shell> useradd -r -g mysql mysql
shell> cd /usr/local
shell> tar zxvf /path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz
shell> ln -s full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS mysql
shell> cd mysql
shell> chown -R mysql .
shell> chgrp -R mysql .
shell> scripts/mysql_install_db –user=mysql
shell> chown -R root .
shell> chown -R mysql data
