MySQL 5.6 Install Steps
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My install instructions on the web site were old, somebody wanted me to publish another set of screen capture for the MySQL 5.6 install and configuration. This is it for Windows 7 using the downloadable MSI file.

Installation Steps

The installation from MySQL’s perspective is actually the installation and configuration of MySQL. For your convenience and reference, I’ve already installed the pre-requisites for MySQL. They’re:

  • Visual Studio Tools for Office 20120 Runtime
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
  • Microsoft Excel 2007 or greater
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 32-bit runtime
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile

Below are the installation steps after you download the current release .msi file.

MySQL is so slow on Windows... Really?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week a customer called me and reported that MySQL was 30 times slower than MS SQL server. Oooops. That's a lot. No way to argue or throw smoke bombs. 30 times slower!It was a standard installation of MySQL (typical install option) on plain Windows 7 and the same for MS SQL Server 2008. The test run was a batch of 30.000 INSERT commands in an SQL script. Runtime was 1 minute on MSSQL and 30 minutes on MySQL.Some tests later we found out that it was only bad on InnoDB. MyISAM was as fast as MSSQL. (I didn't care which one was a bit faster. I didn't care as long as InnoDB was 30 times slower) Finally we nailed the problem down to one parameter in MySQL:innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commitEach INSERT statement is a single transaction (autocommit mode).

SmugMug’s Craig Meakin downs a 7×7 for Windows 7 by Chris MacAskill

First, let me preface this by saying this is a great way to kill yourself, and that I rarely eat meat or cheese, let alone 7 patties and 7 slices.  Please go read this book and this one if you’d like to know how I stay skinny, healthy, cancer- and heart-disease free.  Except when Windows 7 isn’t driving our company mentally insane.

So our Windows 7 copies arrived today, and some moron (my brother) decided that SmugMug needed to have a Windows
