 • Our Articles: Introduction to MySQL

Are you one of those suffering from database syndrome, in which it becomes almost impossible to handle a large chunk of data at any time? Thinking about commercial software at this point? But the hefty prices of any Microsoft or Oracle stable database software's are pushing you down. Then the best option for you is MySQL.
  Some time back, it was not given its due importance, but lately due to its wide range of functionality and effectiveness in tackling large data bases has proved its worth and is now more commercially stabilized. To your knowledge, the all of GOOGLE is built on MySQL!  
  MySQL is a multithreaded, multi-user, Database Management System language. Until now it has been installed on six million systems world wide. This language was developed by MySQL AB and it makes this language and its installation software freely available on the net under the GNU General Public License. The company develops and maintains the MySQL system software, it also keeps track of the selling support and service contracts world wide, as well as proprietary-licensed copies of MySQL.  
  MySQL allows applications to be executed on it, from a large number of languages. The different languages which are compatible with MySQL are C, C++, C#, Delphi , Smalltalk, Java, Perl, PHP, Ruby, Free Basic, and Tcl. Each of these languages uses a different support system to communicate with the MySQL database. The most popular implementation of MySQL in is ANSI C.  
  In the last few years, MySQL has become quite popular with the programmers for web applications. It also acts as a data base component of various platforms like LAMP, MAMP and WAMP platforms. MySQL is often used in combination with PHP and the two together are capable of performing high level jobs. They are together called the Dynamic Duo.  
  The function of MySQL is similar to any commercial data base management system software. It easily allows the building of indexes, also supports standard data types and data base reproduction as well. Its functioning is in synchronization with the AICD model.  
  There are a number of distinguishing features in MySQL that are absent with other RDBMS. It has got multiple storage engines like MyISAM, Merge, InnoDB, BDB, Memory/heap, Cluster, Federated, Archive, CSV and Black hole. This feature allows the user to use the most effective option for each table in the application. It can do grouping, also gather multiple transactions from many sources, thus increasing the commit speed.  
  The first step to begin with MySQL is to download the correct version on your system and install it on your operating system. If you are a new user, install the standard version. For this purpose, your PC should support this installation otherwise; you will need to download all the necessary files for operating MySQL on a non supporting system. Once you've downloaded the correct file for MySQL, you'll need to follow the setting up procedures for your operating system.  
  The next step is to configuring MySQL for Windows after installing MySQL on your system. This is done to customize the data environment for MySQL. When the window installation wizard is complete, it will automatically launch the MySQL set up asking that would you like to perform a standard configuration or a detailed configuration. It is better to choose the standard mode for a beginner.  
  Talking about the standard configuration, it consists of two steps:
  •  Service options
  •  Security options
  Select yes on a screen asking you to install MySQL as a service. The reason behind this is if MySQL is running as a service, then it does not require user interaction. You can also go for automatic launching of MySQL server at the start up of your system - this is another cool option.  
  The second phase of a standard configuration process allows you to change the security settings. There are two types of security settings. The first is the "Root Password" which gives access to the whole administration of the server. Setting this up is strongly recommended because if you're running in an location where the administrator has the right to use and enter the system without a password, anyone may end up running MySQL without your permission. A root password prevents administrative connections from remote network locations. The second option is to use an unidentified user account which is not recommended. This was all about the MySQL installation process.
