Building MariaDB 5.3 on Windows

I just wanted to share my steps for building MariaDB 5.3 on Windows. (Note, this is not much different than the instructions Wlad posted here).

But, things are not always so smooth, and of course I ran into a couple small issues, so I wanted to share my outputs plus those issues and their solutions (once again many thanks go to Wlad!) for those out there who might encounter the same.

Here are the steps to build:

  1. Download MariaDB 5.3 and extracted to C:\mariadb-5.3
  2. cd C:\mariadb-5.3
  3. mkdir bld
  4. cd bld
  5. cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 9 2008"
  6. cmake --build . --config relwithdebinfo --target package

Maintaining (and Building) your MySQL Source Tree on Windows

I just have one last post to round out my series on building MySQL and MariaDB on Windows.

Before, I showed how to obtain the latest source tree and build it. In this one, I simply want to show how easy it is to continue off of that.

So it’s been a week or so, and now you want the latest fixes:

  1. cd C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5
  2. bzr pull
  3. cmake . -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release
  4. VS: File -> Open -> Solution -> MySql.sln
  5. VS: Build -> Build Solution
  6. VS: Right-click “PACKAGE” -> Build (in “Solution Explorer” View)

Simple as that.

Your “no-install” package will be located at:

Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows

Recently, I found myself needing MariaDB 5.1.60 for Windows for some testing purposes. Therefore, I needed to build it from source. I ended up using what I’d call a “blend” of the commands listed in this “how-to” and the readme file INSTALL-WIN-SOURCE, so I thought I’d post those steps.

  1. Download 5.1.60 MariaDB source from here.
  2. cd C:\mariadb-5.1
  3. win\configure.js
  4. cmake .
  5. VS: File -> Open -> Solution -> MySql.sln
  6. VS: Build -> Build Solution
  7. VS: Right-click “PACKAGE” -> Build (in “Solution Explorer” View)

That’s it.

Let’s fire it up:

MySQL 5.5 Windows Build Appendix : Full Outputs and Common Errors from Building MySQL 5.5 on Windows

The other day, I posted a “how-to” article for building MySQL 5.5 on Windows from the source code tree.

In an attempt to keep the post as brief as possible, I omitted many outputs, as well as a number of common bugs/problems one could encounter, and so I just wanted to follow-up with some of that in this “appendix” of sorts.

This way, folks who run into any issues might find solutions to those problems here.

I’ll start with the outputs first, followed by the common problems.

Outputs (When works as expected):

How to Build MySQL 5.5 from Source Code on Windows

Not counting obtaining the source code, and once you have the prerequisites satisfied, [Windows] users can build from source code in 5 easy steps.

Prerequisites – Install & ensure they are in the $PATH:

  1. CMake <-- Download
  2. C++ compiler <-- Visual Studio 2008 Express - Free Download
  3. Bison <-- Download (ensure m4.exe is also included, which it should be)

Optional (but most likely you’ll want):

  1. Perl <-- For Test Suite/Scripts. Strawberry Perl is a great option.
  2. Bazaar <-- If want latest …
