Often I would need to work on customer servers where MySQL Utilities would be a really good fit for the tools I need. However, I would not want to mess around with the customer servers just to have it running so I would have the tools built and sandboxed on its own directory where I can cleanup later. Here’s how:
cd ~ wget http://mysql.mirrors.hoobly.com/Downloads/MySQLGUITools/mysql-utilities-1.4.1.tar.gz tar xzf mysql-utilities-1.4.1.tar.gz cd mysql-utilities-1.4.1 python setup.py build python setup.py install --root=/home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1 export PYTHONPATH=.:/home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages /home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1/usr/bin/mysqlfrm --help
Your source of the package and install directory may vary – enjoy!
