Only works on Unix-like servers. Works with MySQL, Percona & MariaDB servers. MySQL server has the data directory, the port and the socket – you can’t share these.
To use it: make_sandbox foo.tar.gz. Then just do ./use.
$SANDBOX_HOME is ~/sandboxes. You can also create ~/opt/mysql/ and if you have MySQL 5.0.91 binary in that directory, you can just do “sb 5.1.91″.
Sandbox has features to start replication systems as well. You can have varying master/slave setups with varying versions as well (good idea to test from MySQL -> MariaDB master->slave for migration).
You can now also play with[Read more...]
The aims of this kind of blog post is simple – I want to help keep the masses informed as to what’s happening with MariaDB, as a whole. There is a community growing, and MariaDB is a community project, not necessarily a Monty Program Ab baby (and we’re clear on this distinction: think of it like Canonical/Ubuntu). So, think of it as such that I’m sharing the good news, and summarising what’s been happening, to save you time.
MariaDB added to the Debian/Ubuntu wishlists
One of MariaDB’s goals is that it should be easily available for download. While we provide binaries and source at
Normally I like to use the OS’s package manager to manage the software on my system. This ensures that things are done consistently. When managing MySQL I’d also like to manage all my instances the same way. That makes life easier for me but also for my fellow DBAs and sysadmin colleagues.
I use CentOS and the rpm packages it provides and these work quite well. However, the MySQL rpms do not allow me to manage single and multiple instances alike and while mysqld runs as the mysql user the instance management needs to be done as root (stopping, starting instances, or default access). If you want to run multiple instances you can also use mysqld_multi, but that’s not the default setup.
So this is not ideal. While this may not[Read more...]
This is far from deeply technical but little things that should be simple but aren’t annoy me. I found that MySQL Sandbox
--prompt_body don’t “just work.” I wanted the prompt to be
mysql \v> . So I tried:
make_sandbox_from_source /mysql/src/mysql-4.0.30 single --prompt_body=' \v> '
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
sh: -c: line 0: `make_sandbox /mysql/src/mysql-4.0.30/4.0.30 --prompt_body= \v> '
Maybe my shell knowledge is more terrible than I realize so I verified that ‘
\v> ‘ does not need special escaping:
echo ' \v> '
Ok, so clearly it’s the fault of
So, you’ve emailed MySQL Support, they’re working on the problem you’re having. How are they working? What tools do they use? Well, here’s my list:
