Testing MySQL repository packages: how we make sure they work for you
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Around nine months ago, we launched the MySQL yum repositories for Enterprise Linux and Fedora, followed by apt repos for Debian and Ubuntu back in May. We’re extremely happy that the repos have proved to be a big hit with the community: the monthly number of downloads hit 100K recently and it is still growing […]

Repos and Distros: Upstream and Downstream
Employee_Team +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When we launched the official MySQL repos back in October, we wanted to achieve a number of things: First, we closed a gaping hole in our distribution on Linux. Some Linux distros do not ship all the MySQL products, and not everyone is able to or always wants to use the distro packages. And the […]

MariaDB: Improve Security with Two-Step Verification
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this primer I will show how to improve the security of your MariaDB installation by using two-step verification and how to use it from your Windows GUI client.

Let’s suppose you have your data in MariaDB, installed, say, on Ubuntu. And your users connect to it to run ad hoc queries, using some sort of a Windows GUI client. You don’t want them to write the access password on post-it notes or have it auto-entered by the client. And you don’t want anyone see the password when one of the salespersons connects to the mother ship from his laptop in the Internet café. So you decide to use the two-step verification, just like Google …

OLX and MariaDB
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

OLX, a free classifieds site, is serving up 40 million pages a day using MariaDB. Not an insignificant task.

There’s a nice write-up in the MariaDB knowledgebase with particulars. In short, the 5.2 series of MariaDB and some of the unique features of the project have made a migration easy and valuable.

It’s nice to hear such stories. Both because we like interesting sites and projects, as well as our natural interest in larger scale or larger visibility deployments. …

Bzr hacks and tricks: diff -p
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I don’t know about you, but I like diff -p [1].  Having used it for years, I can read these diffs like a text, while diffs without -p often need to have the original file opened side by side, just to get enough of the context.

Loving diff -p so much, I want to see it everywhere (evil laughter). Alas, in bzr only diff command can easily use -p, just run it as bzr diff --diff-options=-p or store it as an alias in the ~/.bazaar/bazaar.conf.

Actually, for an alias there is …

GlassFish scales and configures very quickly for Micello - the "indoor Google Maps" company
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
We all (at least majority of us) use some sort of maps to reach from one destination, say home, to another destination, say a shopping mall or a convention center. But once you've reached the mall then you switch to a different set of tools to navigate that is typically either a paper flyer or sign boards within the mall. Micello.com fills that gaps by providing maps for any indoor locations like airport, shopping malls, convention centers, retail centers, and college campus.


Their application is built …
