Displaying posts with tag: planetmysql (reset) offering MySQL 5.7
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down finally runs MySQL 5.7 which was released on October 21.

Rather than upgrading the existing MySQL server I set up a new MySQL 5.7 server. This is cleaner and it helps to get rid of accounts which are no longer used.

For active users, the MySQL 5.6 server will stay online

until January 15, 2016.

You can access it on port 3307 (the new MySQL 5.7 server will again run on MySQL’s default port 3306).

Users who want to keep their data need to migrate it to the new server:

SSL/TLS Connections to Recent MySQL Servers in Java
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Recent changes to support better security by increasing strength of Diffie-Hellman cipher suites from 512-bit to 2048-bit were introduced to MySQL Server 5.7. While this change enhances security, it is an aggressive change in that 2048-bit DH ciphers are not universally supported. This has become a problem specifically for Java users, as only Java 8 JRE (currently) supports DH ciphers greater than 1024 bits. Making the problem more acute, this change was back-ported from MySQL Server 5.7 to the recent …

Proposal: Adding consistency to protocol selection
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you run multiple MySQL instances on a Linux machine, chances are good that at one time or another, you’ve ended up connected to an instance other than what you had intended. It’s certainly happened to me, and I submitted Bug#76512 to deal with the cause which affects me most commonly – that the mysql client will silently ignore the –port option and connect using the default Unix socket instead when the host is “localhost” (default).  We’ve recently discussed ways we can make this behavior less surprising to users, and though we’re now past the …

Finally! The new Website has launched and along with it comes a new (slightly stronger) server and some simplifications with the service itself.

So what is new? Of course the new website which now is up to modern standards again, using a responsive design. While the old site was only designed for desktop (no surprise if you consider it was created in 2005 and remained more or less unchanged since), the new site adopts to small screen devices like mobile phones and tablets as well. Also the look is totally different:

Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down‘s server has reached its limits, and it was time for a new one. Now here it is, a shiny new server, with 8 times as much memory than the previous one, and also more disk space. Time for a reboot.

Only recently, MySQL 5.6 has become GA with much better performance than 5.5 and earlier, so the combination of a faster MySQL server and a faster machine should result in a very significant performance boost for

I have not migrated any user databases, but they are still available on the previous/old …

  [Read more...] goes HTML5 video
Employee +5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my role as Web Developer for I have always tried to advocate open web standards, and to adopt good new web technologies as early as possible. And I believe that an open source product like MySQL owes the World Wide Web open web technologies, rather than content which requires proprietary plugins. Which is why it’s a pleasure for me to tell you that demo videos which used to require Flash have been replaced by new demo videos which work with HTML5 video (and using Flash only as fallback for old browsers).

My broken Planet MySQL feed..

As those of you with an interest in MySQL may have seen, I’ve recently surged into the list of “Most Active Authors” on Planet MySQL, alas I’m not as prolific a blogger as it may seem, and this is purely down to an error with the feed I submitted to Planet MySQL. Having recently joined [...]

5th anniversary working for MySQL
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On May 17, 2006 – exactly 5 years ago – I started my new job as web developer at MySQL AB.

Since then I closed 3,049 web requests, worked with 9 colleagues in the web team, had 4 direct managers, attended the MySQL User Conference in Santa Clara, CA 4 times (2006-2009, although in 2006 I wasn’t an employee yet, but that was when I got hired, so lets count it) and one all-company meeting in Orlando, FL and went through 2 acquisitions: in 2008 to Sun Microsystems and in 2010 to Oracle.

Time to say thank you to all the great people who I had the pleasure to work with during these 5 years!
