MySQL 8.0 InnoDB ReplicaSet with WordPress in OCI

Today’s article is again related to WordPress and MySQL 8.0. We will see how we can setup MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet and configure WordPress to split the load using both MySQL Instances: we will split reads and writes between the Primary and the Secondary member of our ReplicaSet.

This will be the first part of our journey to achieve HA for our WordPress site on OCI and using all MySQL Servers we have deployed. We don’t want to have a server idle just waiting to take over in case of an incident.

MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet

First some words about MySQL InnoDB ReplicaSet.

Using OCI to install Moodle with MySQL 8.0

Let’s continue our series of using OCI to install popular Open Source programs with MySQL 8.0. After WordPress, Drupal, it’s not the Moodle’s turn!

This is a request from my Japanese colleague Machiko

We will use two different compute instances:

  • the application server (apache, PHP and Moodle)
  • the database server (MySQL 8.0)

The application server will be reachable from the Internet on port 22 (ssh) and 80 (http). The database server won’t be reachable from outside, we will have to use the application server as jumphost to install the server.

This is an overview of the proposed architecture:

Deploying 2 compute instances

The first step is to install 2 compute instances, one in the Public Subnet and one in the Private Subnet.

We first start with the application server (called myMoodle):

As the second instance will be located …

Using OCI to install WordPress and MySQL 8.0

Today we will see how to install WordPress in Oracle Cloud (OCI).

We will use Oracle Cloud’s Free Trier and deploy 2 compute instances:

  • the webserver (apache, PHP and WordPress)
  • the database server (MySQL 8.0)

We will use one public IP to reach our site and our two servers will communicate using their own private network:

Deploying 2 compute instances

Let’s start by creating 2 compute instances:

We will use the Oracle Linux 7.7 on Micro Instances:

As I am in Belgium, I use the Frankfurt datacenter.

When our instances are deployed, we can find the public IP of one of them. This is the one we will use as webserver (you can free the public IP on the other one, the MySQL one):

At the creation, we entered a ssh key to access …

MySQL 8.0 & PHP on RedHat, CentOS and Fedora

As you could read in this previous post, PHP 7.4 is now completely supporting MySQL 8.0 and the new default authentication plugin.

I wanted to make a summary table providing and overview of all PHP versions and how they supported MySQL 8.0 and the different authentication plugins.

As I am a RPM based distribution user, I’m using the famous repository of remi since a lot of years, and I use it then also to install PHP 7.4.0 and 7.4.1

I created a new user to test to …

MySQL 8.0 & PHP

See some update at the end: 23 Dec 2019

MySQL and PHP is a love story that started long time ago. However the love story with MySQL 8.0 was a bit slower to start… but don’t worry it rules now !

The support of MySQL 8.0’s new default authentication method in PHP took some time and was added in PHP 7.2.8 but removed in PHP 7.2.11.

Now it’s fully supported in PHP 7.4 !

If you have installed PHP 7.4, you can see that the new plugin auth_plugin_caching_sha2_passwordis now available:

# php -i | grep "Loaded plugins\|PHP Version " | tail -n2
PHP Warning:  Module 'mysql_xdevapi' already loaded in Unknown on line 0
PHP Version => 7.4.0
Loaded plugins => mysqlnd,debug_trace,auth_plugin_mysql_native_password, …

mysqli Strict Standards

Six years ago I wrote a common lookup post to illustrate the effectiveness of things used throughout your applications. Now, I’m updating my student image with a more complete solution to show how to avoid update anomalies.

In the prior post, I used a while loop in PHP, like the following:

do {
      ...
} while($stmt->next_result());

Using PHP Version 7.3.8 and MySQL 8.0.16, that now raises the following error message:

Strict Standards: mysqli_stmt::next_result(): There is no next result set. Please, call mysqli_stmt_more_results()/mysqli_stmt::more_results() to check whether to call this function/method in /var/www/html/app/library.inc on line 81

You can see this type of error when you set the following parameters in your file during testing:

ini_set('display_errors',1); …

MySQL Update in mysqli

Somebody didn’t like the MySQLi Update Query example on the tutorialspoint.com website because it use the procedure mysqli_query style. Here’s a simple example of using the object-oriented method version. More or less, instead of query it uses the more intuitive execute() method.

The update_member function contains the logic and below it is a call to the test the function. It relies on a MySQLCredentials.inc file that contains the hostname, user name, password, and database name. You can create create member table, like my example in MySQL 8, or any other table in your MySQL database.

<?php /*
||  Function Name: update_member
*/
function update_member($account_number, $member_type, …

Apache on Fedora 30

There was an option during the Fedora 30 Workstation installation to add the Apache Web Server, but you need to set it to start automatically. Unfortunately, there was no option to install PHP, which I thought odd because of how many web developers learn the trade first on PHP with a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python) stack. You see how to fix that shortcoming in this post and how to install and test PHP, mysqli, and pdo to support MySQL 8.

Before you do that make sure you install MySQL 8. You can find my prior blog post on that here.

You set Apache to start automatically, on the next boot of the operating system, with the following command:

chkconfig httpd on

It creates a symbolic link:

Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/httpd.service → …
