Calling for all mysql_install_db feature requests
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

mysql_install_db is the program that is responsible for bootstrapping a fresh copy of MySQL and making sure all of the system tables are setup correctly. This program is usually invoked by other programs as part of installation, but in the case of .tar.gz downloads will need to be executed manually.

As part of our ongoing efforts to refactor and improve MySQL, we are looking at converting mysql_install_db from its current Perl script to a program written in C++. The aim of this change is to reduce external dependencies (Perl + a set of modules) and improve our cross-platform experience.

We plan for this transition to be mostly …

MySQL defaults evolution
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL, the original brand, the one developed by the MySQL team at Oracle, is steadily evolving. You can feel it if you try every new release that comes out of the milestone release cycle. Or even if you don’t try all of them, just testing a release once in a while gives you something to think about.

The engineers at Oracle are trying hard to improve the defaults. If you are the out-of-the-box type, and just install the new version on top of the previous one, leaving the same setup in place, you may be up for a for a few surprises. It’s the marketing, see? They tell you that just by …

Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are looking for community feedback on how improve the Signal-to-Noise ratio of PlanetMySQL, and reduce the amount of irrelevant and off-topic posts.

To give you a sense of where we are at today, we currently approve most [all?] blogs for aggregation, provided they have some existing technical content. We then apply a naive regular expression to make sure that all posts are on topic (MySQL).

The sorts of ideas we are looking for are:

  • What content are you interested in seeing more or less of?
  • What posts do you deem as acceptable or unacceptable?
  • Do we need to change the balance between technical, …

Proposal to deprecate mysqlhotcopy
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we are considering deprecating the mysqlhotcopy utility. To provide some background, here is an excerpt from the MySQL manual:

mysqlhotcopy is a Perl script that was originally written and contributed by Tim Bunce. It uses FLUSH TABLES, LOCK TABLES, and cp or scp to make a database backup. It is a fast way to make a backup of the database or single tables, but it can be run only on the same machine where the database directories are located. mysqlhotcopy works only for backing up MyISAM and ARCHIVE tables. It runs on Unix.
