New alpha release of MySQL Connector/C++
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Version 1.0.3-alpha of the MySQL Connector/C++ has just been announced by Lawrin Novitsky and is now available for download. This driver is licensed under the GPL and is a new implementation of the MySQL Client/Server protocol. Instead of wrapping the C API calls in C++ methods, the implementation mimics the JDBC API, which hopefully feels much more "native" to a seasoned C++ developer.

The driver has been ported to a wide range of platforms and is about to hit the beta test phase. So if you're writing a C++ application that needs to connect to a MySQL Server, give it a try! The developers are always looking for

PHP – Upgrading v5.2.5 to v5.2.8
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Background Knowledge


The following is the process I took to upgrade a web server with PHP v5.2.5 to PHP v5.2.8 running on OpenBSD. PEAR is already installed on this system and up to date. I wasn’t sure if I should exclude PEAR at install or not so therefore did not tell the configurator to exclude PEAR at install.

Installation Process


  • Download the latest stable PHP release from command prompt # wget http://ca.php.net/get/php-5.2.8.tar.gz/from/a/mirror
  • # tar -zxvf php-5.2.8.tar.gz
  • ./configure –with-mysql=/usr/local –with-mssql=/usr/local –with-apxs –with-zlib-dir=/usr/lib –with-config-file-path=/var/www/conf

    Updating from MySQL 5.0 to 5.1 - what's your experience?
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Now that MySQL 5.1 has finally been labeled and released as "GA", we have noticed quite a significant increase in the download numbers for 5.1. I find this quite promising, despite the comments from some people that suggested to stay away from it for now. I performed updates of 5.0 to 5.1 several times already, and did not observe any serious problem so far. But then again, I am by no means a power user, so your mileage may vary...

    I assume that many of the users are already using some older versions of MySQL and will have to perform an upgrade from the previous version to the new one. As many things have been changed and improved between 5.0 and 5.1, an upgrade needs to be planned carefully. The MySQL reference manual has an

    Performance regression testing results or just statistics?
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We’re very excited to see MySQL 5.1.30 make it to GA status and are very proud of the work that the MySQL engineering team has done to get MySQL 5.1 out of the door.

    Maybe you’ve seen some claims by others in the MySQL community that MySQL 5.1 runs slower than MySQL 5.0. Maybe you’ve also seen some claims by others in the MySQL community that MySQL 5.1 runs faster than MySQL 5.0.

    Guess what? They’re both right.

    With database or any other hardware/software performance tests, you’re always going to see different results because there are *so* many variables that go into the equation.

    That being the case, I thought I’d share a little of what we in the MySQL QA group have seen on the 5.1 vs. 5.0 front. Part of our job in MySQL QA is to routinely test

    mylvmbackup-0.11 has been released
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Some days ago, I released version 0.11 of mylvmbackup a Perl script that performs consistent backups of a MySQL server by using LVM filesystem snapshots. The source archive as well as a generic RPM can be found on the project home page, packages for many Linux distributions are available on the openSUSE Build service.

    This release includes some new functionality as well as numerous bug fixes and improvements, most notably:

    • Added support for using rsnap as a backup backend (Matt Lohier)
    • The documentation is now maintained in POD style instead of asciidoc (Matthew Boehm)
    • Support using non-GNU tar

    mylvmbackup 0.10 has been released
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I am happy to announce that mylvmbackup version 0.10 has been released.

    You can download the updated package from the project home page or via the openSUSE Build Service.

    This version fixes some bugs and includes new functionality:

    • Applied patch from Marc Haber: added option --keep_snapshot that will skip the removal of the backup snapshot before terminating the script. Providing the option --backuptype=none will now skip creating a backup using the builtin backup modules. Both options provide more flexibility when using hooks for performing the actual backup tasks or when the snapshot is considered to be the actual backup.
    • Added two new hooks: "backupsuccess" and "backupfailure" which are called respectively upon success of failure of the backup operation (
