This describes the installation of a MySQL-Server.
If you want to use this solution you need the following howto(s) finished:
MySQL should listen only on the socket
# skip-networking bind-address = 127.0.0.1After change
skip-networking #bind-address = 127.0.0.1
This deactivetes bin-logging, because we don't want to use a MySQL cluster. Backups are made with the Backup-Script. (see Backup topic)
log-bin server-id = 1After change
# log-bin # server-id = 1
For starting the new service after system reboot you should add it to a runlevel with the following command(s):
rc-update add mysql
