MySQL Workbench on Mac OS X
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Workbench Mac support has been requested from our community for a very long time. We got several emails and comments on the web and IRC channel that Workbench is the only tool why a lot of people are still running a VMware Fusion or Parallels session with Windows.

Therefore we are very happy about the recent release of WB 5.1 Beta1 which is the first release that is available on our three main platforms, Windows, Mac & Linux.

Those who have been giving MySQL Workbench 5.1 Beta1 on Mac OS X a try may have noticed the huge speed gain, compared to the Windows version, especially when working with bigger models. We even got complaints why we have “slowed down” the Windows version but this is simply due to the GUI hardware acceleration support available on the Mac, as well as on Linux

MySQL Workbench 5.1 OSS Goes Beta
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are proud to announce the release of the first official Beta of MySQL Workbench 5.1, the next highly anticipated version of our database GUI tool - MySQL Workbench. For the first time we are making an announcement for all our major platforms at the same time: OSX, Linux and Windows.

MySQL Workbench 5.1 has some major improvement over our current 5.0 release, many of them might not be that visible when looking at the UI only. We did a major overhaul under the hood in addition to enhance usability and adding some features. On top of it, we moved some features to 5.1 OSS, that were only available in SE edition for 5.0 (like different notation styles i.e.). The editors have been tuned to startup more quickly, and some of them also got face lifted. All Wizards have been revamped using our new mForms library.

Please keep in mind that this is the first beta release of MySQL Workbench 5.1, and

MySQL Workbench 5.1.7 Alpha For Linux And OS X Available
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week we had a team meeting, where we could discuss and plan various issues and ideas for current and upcoming versions of our project.

But finally it’s time to publish new material to show what we were up to in the past weeks. We have our first dual-platform-release of the MySQL Workbench 5.1.7 alpha version.

Please note, that in terms of UI linux- and OSX- version aren’t yet on the same level of completeness. While we are nearly done having all features onboard for the linux-build, we still have some more checkmarks to fill on the osx checklist - but we are catching up. Nevertheless it’s the same codebase - especially the backend-code is the same for all platforms.

Some of you might be missing a release - 5.1.6 for Linux. No, you didn’t miss an announcement: For the purpose of unifying the releases for Linux and mac we simply didn’t publish 5.1.6 last

Mac users: MAMP now recommended, not XAMPP
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Dear Mac users,

There have been a number of issues with configuring XAMP on the Mac for use with NetBeans IDE, most significantly that XAMP sets the owners of MySQL databases to "nobody", blocking Apache access. Therefore I have changed the Mac OS setup tutorial to use MAMP instead of XAMP. In my opinion, the MAMP setup is more straightforward than the one for XAMP, anyway.

How To – Access Files on Windows from Mac OS X

Background Knowledge

With the use of Samba we are able to share files through a local network and make it appear as if the files are on the Mac OS X locally. The instructions below will step you through step by step on how to access files from the Mac OS X to a Windows XP/Vista™ system through the network.

NOTE: Instructions to unblock network traffic through a software/hardware firewall are not provided. Refer to your software/network manual or support web site for details.

NOTE: These instructions will not allow for sharing via the Internet.


Setting up a file share in Windows XP

  • Open Windows Explorer/My Computer (press Windows Key+E) or go to the Windows Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> Windows Explorer.

    MySQL Workbench 5.1 1st Alpha for Mac OS Available
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Our Mac Developers have done an outstanding job in catching up with the Mac frontend. We have worked hard in the last days to get a little Christmas present out for all people waiting for a Mac Version of our Database Tool.
    It’s a 1st alpha version, so don’t expect a full blown design application already - and the binary is Intel only this time (hey, it’s only Christmas folks ;).  But what we deliver is a working UI where you can load/save existing Workbench-documents and create diagrams from imported SQL-scripts. The canvas and the GRT system is up and running and there’s a shell which enables messing with the objects on GRT level. There are no object editors yet (so you can’t create and edit objects, but still build your diagrams for your existing SQL CREATE scripts) and wizards for exporting scripts, and connecting to databases are also missing. But enough writing, grab

    Creating the LAMP stack on Mac OS X 10.5 (Does that make it a MAMP stack?)
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    So we all know about the good old LAMP stack... Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. It's a beautiful thing. I recently just started early development on a web application and instead of using Tomcat, Struts, Spring, Hibernate, or any of the Java-based frameworks that I am familiar with I've decided to take a step back to my programming past and use PHP with MySQL. Except this time, I'm using a Mac...

    Let's start with my setup. I have a MacBook with OS X 10.5 (Leopard) so if you are running anything older this may not apply. Apache 2 and PHP 5 are shipped with 10.5 and I will talk about enabling them later.

    The only piece we are missing is MySQL, and lucky us, they now make Mac binaries that you can find at Download the binary for the Mac (if you want to build the source get the

    Log Buffer #120: a Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Previously on Log Buffer: Log Buffer #119.

    And now.

    Welcome to Log Buffer #120. My name is Warner, and I’m a SQL Server DBA at The Pythian Group. This is my first time on Log Buffer duties ever, so here’s hoping I can give everyone a fair and unbiased look at this week in the database blogging world (and related).

    I admit I had no idea of the community or state of the PostgreSQL RDBMS, and so I definitely learned some new stuff this week. First off, over on “The Scale-out Blog” Robert Hodges invites us all to get our
