MySQL Password Security Changes for PHP Developers
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7 introduced many new facets to password security. The first thing most notice is that you are assigned a random root password at installation time. You then have to search the log file for this random password, use it to login, and then change it. For the examples on the post I am using a fresh install of 5.7.13 on Oracle Linux 7.1 and was provided with the easy to remember password of nLvQRk7wq-NY which to me looked like I forgot to hit escape when trying to get out of vim. A quick ALTER USER to change the password and you are on your way. Defaults …

Docker for Mac beta and MySQL - First impressions
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Using Docker for development is a great way of ensuring that what you develop will be the same that you deploy in production. This is true for almost everything. If you develop on Linux, the above statement holds. If you develop on a different operating system (OSX or Windows) there are several restrictions.

I showed one of those issues in a recent article (MySQL and Docker on a Mac: networking oddity.) When you want to export a port from a service running in the container, the …

Taking the MySQL document store for a spin
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is not a comprehensive review, nor an user guide. It's a step-by-step account of my initial impressions while trying the new MySQL XProtocol and the document store capabilities. In fact, I am barely scratching the surface here: more articles will come as time allows.

MySQL 5.7 has been GA for several months, as it was released in October 2015. Among the many features and improvements, I was surprised to see the MySQL team emphasizing the JSON data type. While it is an interesting feature per se, I failed to see the reason why so many articles and …

What happens when you create a MySQL Document Store
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL Document Store introduced with version 5.7.12 allows developers to create document collections without have to know Structured Query Language. The new feature also comes with a new set of terminology. So let us create a collection and see what it in it (basically creating a table for us SQL speakin' old timers).

So start the mysqlsh program, connect to the server, change to the world-x schema (database) switch to Python mode, a create a collection (table).

Digging Down into JSON data with the MySQL Functions -- A Question from Peter Zaitsev -- Follow Up
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last time this blog covered digging into a JSON document in a MySQL 5.7 table. The goal was to pull certain records matching a particular criteria. Both Peter Zaitsev and Morgan Tocker get my thanks for their kind comments. My example was a little contrived in that an application would be used to fine tune seeking for a particular key value pair. I was trying to pull single records which is kind of silly when it is much easier to use PHP to parse the data. What follows below is a sample PHP script to grab out …

Frictionless MySQL installation
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I saw an interesting post about the ability of installing MySQL 5.7 without changing existing tools and procedures. The post is a plea to make MySQL installation frictionless.

That post was followed by a conversation on Twitter, where the recent security enhancements are blamed for getting in the way of existing practices and need a rewrite of installation tools.

I know the problem very well, as I have faced the installation change in MySQL …
