MySQL

What is MySQL?

  • MSQL / MySQL DatabasesThe world's most widely used open source database application. MySQL is a relational database management system. World Class SQL Server

  • PHPA server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language.

    Why MySQL and not another database system that supports

    SQL?

    MySQL is:

  • Available at little cost ….. or Free

  • Well-supported and

  • Fast


MySQL

History

  • In 1996 T.c.X. DataKonsultAB , a consulting firm in Sweden developed MySQL.

  • Created Alternative database from the general idea of mSQL.


MySQL

Facts

  • MySQL is the largest growing relational database out on the market.

  • MySQL mainly runs on UNIX-based environments

  • MySQL acts as a DBMS

  • MySQL is one of the most used open source databases in the world.

  • Can use Enhanced MySQL

  • Capacity to handle 50,000,000+ records.

  • Very fast command execution, perhaps the fastest to be found on the market.

  • Easy and efficient user privilege system.

MySQL

MySQL and PostGreSQL Compared

  • MySQL – Ease of use / long-term stability

  • PostGre - Funtionality

  • Postgres has an arcane limit of 8k of data per row

  • Postgres - its "serial" data type (the equivalent of MySQL's auto_increment) creates a "sequence" which does not get dropped when its parent table is dropped.

  • MySQL is "smart" enough to increment its auto_increment value when you import data

  • MySQL has no built in method for doing db size limits


MySQL

Benefits (1)

  • Able to handle large databases that can be accessed over the Web.

  • Flexible and secure password system to protect your data - powerful security system

  • Fast, reliable, easy to use, and affordable!

  • Relational database management system

  • Stability

  • On-line help facility - (type –help or -?,)

  • MySQL meets the ANSI SQL92 regulations


MySQL

Benefits (2)

  • MySQL allows users to connect to a specific database on the server and issue requests.

  • Concurrent access

  • This system can run on virtually on any platform – UNIX and Windows

  • MySQL also comes with a source code

  • MySQL is used at the enterprise level because of its security.


MySQL

Drawbacks

  • The hard part about this is there is not a lot of documentation available

  • MySQL has no built in method for doing db size limits

  • MySQL requires that you either:

    • code the data integrity into your product or

    • you right some scripts to go through the logs and check that integrity was maintained


MySQL

Setting Up Database Driven Websites

  • Setup the MySQL database server

  • Setup the Apache web server

  • Setup the PHP 3.0 Hypertext Preprocessor for server-side-scripting

  • Create a simple web enabled database


MySQL

How It WorksMySQL is based on a client/server model
