SQLyog helped Steven Manage MySQL Databases for over 15 Years

The story of Steven Mapes, an experienced software developer who has been using SQLyog MySQL GUI since 2002.

We were so thrilled to speak with Steven Mapes for two simple reasons. One, he is an ardent user of SQLyog. Two, he has been using the tool since 2002 (we had released the GA version of SQLyog in 2002). And, it is users like Steven who make the product successful with their constant support and feedback that keeps us going.

We go down memory lane and learn some interesting facts about SQLyog that made Steven stick with the tool for more than a decade.

Steven Mapes is a self-employed software solutions provider who develops web-based polyglot solutions for clients often hosted within the cloud since 2012. Before it, he was the Head of IT for Moko Social Media in the UK. When asked about how he came across SQLyog and the need to use the tool, Steven says,”My first exposure to SQLyog was back in 2002 when the …

9 easy performance tips for your Linux environment

For the majority of us who have grown accustomed to a Windows environment over the years, Linux can seem like another world. In essence, Linux is a free open-source operating system that has gained increasing popularity since its release in 1991. Linux is based on the whole Unix ecosystem of operating systems that grew out of Bell Laboratories in the early 1970s. Linux has been around for almost 25 years and grew immensely in the late 1990s and early 2000s when it became associated with the LAMP web development stack; Linux stands for the ‘L’ in the acronym of popular tools, along with Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python.





The main difference that …

I'm speaking about MySQL tools on BGOUG's spring conference

I will be speaking about MySQL at the Bulgarian Oracle Users Group's Spring Conference.

This will be the 3d BGOUG conference I'm speaking to. And I expect no less than the stellar organization and the great audience that I had the privilege to interact with during the previous 2 conferences.

We had a lot of fun too ! Parties from the last 2 conferences are …

Announcement: MyQuery 3.4.1 Released

MyQuery 4version 3.4.1 is now released on Sourceforge: This is a pretty minor release with just a few fixes, but the first of them pretty significant:

  • Windows 7 User Access Control (UAC) issue fixed - When running on Windows 7, the Windows UAC would prohibit MyQuery from starting, complaining about registry access. For once, this was not yet another UAC annoyance, but an actual bug that I hadn't caught before. Now, this should work OK even on Windows 7.
  • SQL Statement normalization issues - The SQL Statements dialog got statements wrong at times, and could cause a crash. This was due to a bug in the normalization of SQL Statements and this is now fixed, including refining the normalization a bit.
  • Optionally Show SQL SELECT tool output vertically - This will turn the output from the SQL command in …

BlueBox GUI for FreeSWITCH looks very promising

(NOTE: If you’ve come here from my apologies. I’ve notified them to only follow my database related posts and hope they’ll not follow my full blog feed shortly.) I recently came across a new site which offers a GUI configuration tool for FreeSWITCH. Despite buying the FreeSWITCH 1.0.6 Book which is a very good [...]

MyQuery 3.4.0 Released!

I have not finished MyQuery 3.4.0, after a long time of weekend and spare-time development. This version adds some features that are basically Scintilla featires that I have integrated with. This includes error indicators, margin markers and some other things. In particular the margin markers changes a few things in the interface: When running up to, or continue from a point in teh script, then use the margin marker instead of the current line! If you don't like this, then don't set the margin marker and the current line will be used just like in old releases.

Another addition this release is Online help. I get the help contents from the database that you connect to, which is installed with most MySQL installations in the tables called help_xxx in the mysql schema.

External program has a few more options, and in this release the installer installs a …

MyQuery 3.4 soon to be released

I've been spending some cycles now and then on MyQuery 3.4. One thing I wanted to do with this release was to fix some long-standing bugs I knew about, but hadn't identified (Are you seeing ReleaseSemaphore errors? That's one of them). Also, I had a couple of issues with the new Plugins, as well as some ideas for new features, such as OnLine Help.

In addition to that, I also felt that the Scintilla editor controls tht I was using wasn't used to it's full potential.

As I have the new 3.4 in front of me now, I have done something about all those things. I have cleaned up some of the more recent code, I have added OnLine help, in this case I get that from the MySQL help tables. I am pretty happy with how a few more steps to integration with Scintilla could add so much more usability, Scintilla really is a great editor control with a lot of potential, I haven't …

All-GUI MySQL on Mac

aka “How to use multiple MySQL Servers and Workbench in Snow Leopard without using Terminal… and live happily ever after”

The MySQL Community is a world of command-line aficionados. Many people, including myself, show their love to the simple-but-powerful interface of the mysql command-line client, but not everybody is keen to use a bash shell and give up its GUI, no matter how powerful the software is.

Until recently, GUI tools for MySQL were half baked solutions: in the end, there was always something that you had to do via the command line. Today, you can install, set up and use MySQL on your Mac with Snow Leopard without using Terminal, at all.

My Special Needs

Before digging into the details of the installation, let me describe what I need on my Mac. I use various versions of MySQL and I often need to run 2 or more instances at the same time. I constantly build, install and uninstall versions of …

This is the first part of a series of short articles with a how-to approach about MySQL® Performance Monitoring, Tuning & Auditing. We will see the question from a GUI prospective.
