Oracle Live: MySQL & HeatWave

On December 2, Edward Screven, Oracle’s chief corporate architect revealed the Oracle MySQL Database Service with Analytics Engine known as HeatWave.

Discovering MySQL Database Service – Episode 1 – Introduction

This is the first episode of “Discovering MySQL Database Service“, a series of tutorials where I will show you, step by step, how to use MySQL Database Service and some other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services.

Like any series, in this episode I’m going to give you some context and set up the characters.

The post Discovering MySQL Database Service – Episode 1 – Introduction first appeared on dasini.net - Diary of a MySQL experts.

Streaming MySQL Binlogs to S3 (or Any Object Storage)

Problem Statement

Having backups of binary logs is fairly normal these days. The more recent binary logs are copied offsite, the better RPO (Recovery Point Objective) can be achieved. I was asked multiple times recently if something could be done to “stream” the binary logs to S3 as close to real-time as possible. Unfortunately, there is no readily available solution that would do that. Here, I show what can be done and also show a proof of concept implementation, which is not suitable for production use.

In this example, the instance has two binary log files (mysql-bin.000001 and mysql-bin.000002) already closed and mysql-bin.000003 being written. A trivial solution for backing up these binary log files would be to back up just the closed ones (the one that is not written). The default size of the binary log file is 1 GB. This means with this solution we would have a 1 GB binlog not backed up in the worst-case scenario. On …

MDS, PHP and authentication

Recently I blogged about how to easily deploy a LAMP application to MDS.

Using the Terraform module (OCI Resource Manager’s Stack) you also have the possibility to choose the PHP version to install:

But as you should already know, not all versions support the latest default authentication method in MySQL 8.0: caching_sha2_password [1], [2], [3].

Most of the PHP applications are using mysqli and mysqlnd

Deploy your own PHP application on OCI and MDS

Recently, I wrote several articles about how to deploy popular Open Source applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and MySQL Database Service.

Today we will see how you can deploy your own LAMP stack application using the same technique where L will stand for a compute instance (and why not the Ampere always free trier?), A stays Apache and will run in that compute instance. M stands for MySQL Database Service and P for PHP.

As usual we start by deploying a Stack by just clicking on the deploy button from GitHub:

The we are directly redirected to OCI’s dashboard and we need to accept the Terms of Use:

As soon …

Use Matomo Website Analytics on OCI with MDS

Matomo is a Google Analytics alternative for your websites. If you follow my blog, you know how easy it’s to deploy popular Open Source web solutions like WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Moodle, Magento on OCI. If this is not yet your case, please check this page: deploy on OCI.

All these solutions are using MySQL Database Service to store their data.

I’ve recently added a new stack to also deploy Matomo. Of course this can be a standalone installation to collect all your analytics from self-hosted websites, but today I will describe you how to use it with an existing stack we already deployed on OCI.

For this example, I deployed WordPress using the following stack: …

Deploy on OCI using Ampere Compute Instances !

Yesterday, Oracle announced a new range of Arm compute instances based on Ampere’s ARM processors

This is a very nice announcement ![1], [2] and something also very cool is that you are eligible for an Always Free instance up to 4 OCPUs, 24GB of RAM and 4Gbps network bandwidth !!

This is the max you can have and you define it during the shape selection:

I have already updated all the Stacks I propose to …

Deploy Moodle on OCI with MDS

Moodle is the world’s most popular learning management system. Moodle is Open Source and of course it’s compatible with the most popular Open Source Database : MySQL !

I’ve already posted an article on how to install Moodle on OCI before we released MySQL Database Service. In this article we will see how to deploy Moodle very easily in OCI and using MDS.

Once again we will use the easiest way to deploy an complete architecture on OCI: Resource Manager.

We will then use a stack I’ve created that is available on GitHub This stack includes Terraform code allowing to deploy different architectures that we can use for Moodle. I’ve tried to cover the main possible architecture directly in the stack. …
