OurDelta
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The MySQL packages in Debian still do not (and will never) include inofficial feature patches (beside the redirect output of error.log to syslog in MySQL 5.0, which is now part of the official MySQL 5.1 releases) like the ones from Percona or Google. Of course we add important bugfixes from newer (not yet released) versions of MySQL, but no feature patches.

If you are interested in a patched version of the Debian MySQL packages, take a look at OurDelta, their builds include patches (complete list) like mirrored binlog and InnoDB freeze. Upgrading from the official Debian packages of MySQL to the builds from OurDelta should work without problems, but please use Launchpad when reporting bugs against their packages, and not the Debian Bug Tracking System.

MySQL 5.0.75 uploaded to Debian
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
This week MySQL released version 5.0.75 of their Community Edition. The package in testing is in good shape, so I had time to prepare and upload 5.0.75-1 to unstable, but it should work on testing as well. I also made a rebuild for etch, which is available here.

Dropping MySQL Cluster support from Debian (for a while)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
In the next upload of MySQL 5.1.30 to the experimental branch of Debian we are going to drop MySQL Cluster support from the standard MySQL packages. I already wrote something about the future of MySQL Cluster in Debian a while ago, this is just the first step towards a separate mysql-cluster package in Debian.

This change does not (and will never) affect the MySQL packages in etch and lenny, and unstable not until we decide to move MySQL 5.1 from experimental to unstable.

Installing Nginx With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Debian Etch

Nginx (pronounced "engine x") is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server. Nginx is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. This tutorial shows how you can install Nginx on a Debian Etch server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.

Setting Up Master-Master Replication On Four Nodes With MySQL 5 On Debian Etch

This tutorial explains how you can set up MySQL master-master replication on four MySQL nodes (running on Debian Etch). The difference to a two node master-master replication is that if you have more than two nodes, the replication goes in a circle, i.e., with four nodes, the replication goes from node1 to node2, from node2 to node3, from node3 to node4, and from node4 to node1.

Hello, there! With another Ubuntu release, it has come the time to update our series of posts on how to install Oracle 11g on Ubuntu. If you’ve been following, we’ve been publishing updated howtos since Ubuntu 7.04:

Preventing MySQL Injection Attacks With GreenSQL On Debian Etch

Preventing MySQL Injection Attacks With GreenSQL On Debian Etch

GreenSQL (or greensql-fw) is a firewall for MySQL databases that filters SQL injection attacks. It works as a reverse proxy, i.e., it takes the SQL queries, checks them, passes them on to the MySQL database and delivers back the result from the MySQL database. It comes with a web interface (called greensql-console) so that you can manage GreenSQL through a web browser. This guide shows how you can install GreenSQL and its web interface on a Debian Etch server.

Init Script for MySQL Proxy in Debian
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
This morning I finally found some time to add an init script to the Debian package of mysql-proxy (0.6.1-3 which includes it was just uploaded to unstable, I will try to get a freeze exception for lenny). It is disabled by default, because mysql-proxy is quite useless without a proper configuration. It can be enabled in /etc/default/mysql-proxy, here is an example:
ENABLED="true"
OPTIONS="--proxy-lua-script=/usr/share/mysql-proxy/rw-splitting.lua
         --proxy-address=192.168.1.140:3306
         --proxy-backend-addresses=192.168.1.20:3306

MySQL 5.0.67 not uploaded to Debian
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Last weekend I updated the Debian package of MySQL to 5.0.67, the latest Community Edition release. It was not uploaded into the Debian archive, but is available from my home directory on gluck (amd64 only at the moment). The next Debian release lenny is frozen already, which means no newer upstream releases get accepted into testing before lenny is released, hence lenny definitely gets shipped with MySQL 5.0.51a. We will not see MySQL 5.0.67 or 5.1 in lenny, but we will continue providing backports of newer MySQL releases.

Our current primary goal regarding the MySQL packages in Debian is to get 5.0.51a in shape for lenny, so please do not send us mails asking

When lenny got released we will upload MySQL 5.0.67 (or any newer community release) to unstable, and will then take care of MySQL 5.1 and MySQL Cluster.
Anyone want to help build RPMs of Maatkit?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Dear LazyWeb, I want to use my Ubuntu laptop (on amd64 BTW) to build an RPM of Maatkit that will work on all RPM-based distros. Is it possible? Or are there enough differences between the RPM-based distros that I can’t do it? Mind you, the finished RPM ought to just have some man pages and Perl scripts, so I don’t think it will be platform- or distro-specific. But I am just not an expert on it.

The second question is, what do I need to put into my Makefile to do this? My ‘make all’ currently builds a .zip, a .tar.gz, and a .deb package — what needs to change to make that include .rpm?

Someone who is willing to help create .spec files, etc, etc will be immediately given commit rights to Maatkit’s SVN repository!

Off to DebConf 8 and Argentina
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I'm off in few hours to attend DebConf 8 in lovely Mar del Plata, Argentina.  The only bummer is that its winter down there so this seaside resort is going to be a bit chlly and as a result Im not able to pack as light as I usually do.  That being said, getting away from the string of 100 degree days that we've been having here in Austin isn't such a bad thing.

I had a great time at DebConf 7 in Edinburgh, particularly since it was a homecoming of sorts for me.  This time its exciting since I've never been to Argentina before and have heard great things.

How To Set Up WebDAV With MySQL Authentication On Apache2 (Debian Etch)

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with MySQL authentication (using mod_auth_mysql) on Apache2 on a Debian Etch server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

How To Set Up A Load-Balanced MySQL Cluster With MySQL 5.1

This tutorial is based on Falko Timme's tutorial for MySQL Cluster 5.0. It shows how to configure a MySQL 5.1 cluster with five nodes: 1 x management, 2 x storage nodes and 2 x balancer nodes. This cluster is load-balanced by an Ultra Monkey package which provides heartbeat (for checking if the other node is still alive) and ldirectord (to split up the requests to the nodes of the MySQL cluster).

I found myself with some spare time the other day and decided that my current mysql backup strategy is not the best in the world. The mysql server is a virtual machine in a Brisbane datacenter and it's backed up via a script that calls mysqldump on each installed database and dumps the content to (compressed) files. These files then get sucked down via rdiff-backup.

This is fine in principle, but does mean it's possible for me to lose 24 hours worth of data due to an accidental '--; DROP table students.

A more ideal way would be for the remote sql server to replicate to a local one, on which I can run mysqldump more often without affecting web site performance. (Replication would replicate the DROP table statement too.. :-)

With a bit of a confluence of attending three days of OpenQuery mysql training and needing to regenerate all

The future of MySQL Cluster in Debian

MySQL 5.1.24 was released last week. I am nearly done with preparing and testing the updated package for Debian, and will upload it to experimental within the next few days. MySQL AB decided to disable Cluster support from their official binaries with 5.1.24, but unfortunately they forgot to add a note to the release notes. It was only mentioned in a bugreport where someone asked why mysqld does no longer understand the --ndbcluster option in 5.1.24:
