How to Build MySQL 5.7 on Windows from Source Code
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I just installed 5.7.1 on Windows and next up was to build it from source on Windows, so that’s what I did, and thought I’d share the steps.

** Prerequisites **

1. Install Microsoft Visual Studio (I installed VS 2010 Express – free)
2. Install cmake
3. Install bison (make sure no spaces in path)

** Build Instructions **

cd c:\mysql\mysql-5.7.1
mkdir bld
cd bld
cmake ..
cmake --build . --config relwithdebinfo --target package

And here is the full output for anyone who might be interested:

C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\mysql\mysql-5.7.1

C:\mysql\mysql-5.7.1>mkdir bld

C:\mysql\mysql-5.7.1>cd bld

C:\mysql\mysql-5.7.1\bld>cmake ..
-- Building for: Visual Studio 10
-- Running cmake version 2.8.11.1
-- Configuring with MAX_INDEXES = 64U
-- The C compiler identification is MSVC

Troubleshooting Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a follow-up, troubleshooting article that goes hand-in-hand with my “Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows Revisited” post, and covers some problems and their solutions that one might encounter when attempting to build MariaDB from source code on Microsoft Windows.

The first error I ran into was this, on my main compile step (i.e., the 2nd cmake command):

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Microsoft.Cpp
Common.targets(151,5): error MSB6006: "cmd.exe" exited with code 1.
[C:\mysql\mariadb-5.1.67\bld\scripts\GenFixPrivs.vcxproj]

That in itself doesn’t tell us too much. Searching the full compile output, we find:

Generating ../../scripts/mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql
The system cannot find the file specified.

Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows Revisited
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I previously wrote an article on Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows, but it was about 1.5 years ago (for 5.1.60; this is for 5.1.67), so I wanted to update this a little since I’ve built it entirely from the command-line this time (as well as highlight a couple problems/solutions – which I’ll cover in a subsequent troubleshooting post). This process it quite similar to my steps for building MariaDB 5.5 and MariaDB 10.0, however it’s slightly different since 5.1 requires you run the configure.js script before running cmake. Aside from that though, things are mostly the same.

Here is the full procedure:

Installing MySQL 5.7.1 (Milestone Release) on Windows 7
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wanted install MySQL 5.7.1 (1st Milestone Release) on Windows 7 and test it out a bit, so I did, and since things didn’t go as smooth as expected, I thought I’d share my experience, in case anyone else runs into the same issues.

I downloaded the .msi (mysql-5.7.1-m11-winx64.msi) from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/ (then click the “Developmental Releases” tab) and installed it following the prompts. That seemed to complete fine, which was great. However, that was it – and not in a good way. I mean, the “installer” basically only unpacked the files to a location.

I was expecting the “configuration” tool to run, but it didn’t. It was not installed, and not an option.

I quickly read through the 5.7.1 changelog and found the config tool is not part of the

    High Availability for Drupal Part 1 - Investigating the Issues
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Drupal is one of the most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) and is used increasingly in high-visibility sites, such as www.whitehouse.gov. This has brought a lot of attention on how to get the most performance out of Drupal and how to improve the availability of such sites. In this blog series I'll take you through the basics and on through to designing your own HA Drupal site.

    But first, we need to understand what the challenges are in getting Drupal (or indeed any CMS) working on multiple servers in such a way as to ensure high availability and performance.

    I was reviewing the Percona Live sponsors list the other day and pondering the potential success stories associated with this product or that one…. and as I was preparing to put more thought on the topic, a PlanetMySQL post caught my eye.

    5 years of MySQL

    People often write a blog post when they reach some nice anniversary since they joined MySQL community. Well, for those old enough it usually means when they joined MySQL AB as employee. For me this was January 2008. Because I didn't remember the month correctly, I haven't blogged anything then, but decided to save it for a better opportunity - now.

    TL;DR Starting this week I will be working for 10gen, selling MongoDB to the Nordics. This blog post is really long - even then it doesn't contain the most interesting stories, I'm not sure if they can ever be published. Sorry for the length, but remember you don't need to read all at once. This is my last MySQL post so save some of it for cold winter days!

    I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
    Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
    But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

    Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

    I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.

    For me, the biggest news in the last 24 hours so far has been:

  • SkySQL merges with Monty Program, developers of MariaDB. This of course affects me directly and leads to a change in affiliation in a few months.
  • TokuDB goes opensource. I think this is really big news. Beyond just the fact that it can now be a storage engine in the main MariaDB tree, I love the work they’re doing to extend it to be an engine for MongoDB as well.

    Building MySQL and MariaDB on Windows using Visual Studio 2012 Express versus Visual Studio 2010 Express
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I mentioned in a recent post (and another recent, related post) I was going to try Visual Studio 2012 Express (as opposed to VS 2010 Express) for building MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0. on Windows.

    I followed the exact same steps, but MySQL 5.6.10 would not build without fatal errors in 2012 (whereas it worked fine with VS 2010). Unfortunately, the fail errors were not too descriptive, so not quite sure what to do yet to fix it. Here is a brief snippet for those interested:

    ...
