Linux User-Group Console

This post shows you how to add the menu option and GUI to set users and groups. It’s quite a bit easier than mastering all the command-line syntax. It makes setting up the required user and group accounts for an Oracle Enterprise or MySQL database solution much easier.

You add the utility by calling the yum (Yellowdog Updater, Modified) utility like this:

yum installed -y system-config_users

You should see the following:

Mountain Lion Pre-MySQL

While I try to contain everything about installing MySQL in a single post that I update from time-to-time, Mac OS X, Mountain Lion (10.8.x), requires some pre-steps. You must install XCode, and the Command Line Tools. This post provides the screen shots and step-by-step instructions.

Before you can do any of these steps, you must connect to the Apple Store and download XCode. Dependent on your internet speed this may take some time. Generally, it’s an hour or less.

  1. After installing XCode, click the Rocket Spaceship in the Mac Dock to launch a view of your Applications. Launch XCode by clicking on the hammer overlaying the blue background XCode icon shown below.

MySQL Workbench Scripts

It’s always interesting when somebody asks why they got an error message, and especially sweet when you’re working on something related that lets you answer the question. They were using MySQL Workbench and wanted to know why they couldn’t open a SQL script file by clicking on the Scripting menu option.

As I explained to the individual who asked, you should always click the Edit SQL Script link in the SQL Development section of the MySQL Workbench home page to work on SQL scripts. The Scripting menu option supports Python and Lua plug-ins development and scripts.

They did the following initially, which led down the rabbit warren and left them stumped because they don’t know anything about Python or Lua. This is provided to those who choose to experiment with this advanced feature of MySQL Workbench.

PHP/MySQL Query

Somebody wanted an example of how to handle column values using PHP to query a MySQL database. While I thought there were enough examples out there, they couldn’t find one that was code complete.

Well, here’s one that works using a static query. If you want to use a prepared statement, check this earlier post.

Zend CE has a Worm

After updating the AVGFree virus definitions, I was surprised to find that Zend CE (Community Edition) 4.0.6 had a worm in the JavaServer.exe file. There was greater surprise when Zend CE 5.3.9 (5.6.0-SP1) also had the same worm.

This is the message identifying the worm (click on it to see a full size image), and you can read about this particular worm on the Mcafee site:

Unless you have the full version of AVG or another security program to try and fix the file, you can only quarantine the file. Quarantine or removal disables Zend CE from working. It begs the questions, “how does Zend release a core file with a worm?”

I’ll update this when there’s a fix to this problem.

Mac users: MAMP now recommended, not XAMPP

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.
