In our project we are using MySQL 5.0.90(InnoDB engine) server with an external storage. We store MySQL data files in an external storage. When the external storage down for a reason we have unstable behaviours. So we made some tests.
In Windows Server 2008
We closed external storage physically. MySQL service stoped and we could not reach the server.
Iam trying to install one version of mysql in a LINUX machine. The system contain already another version of mysql installation. I prefer manual installation. Copy the extracted tarball into a location and create symbolic link to that. I wish to install my mysql version without affecting already installed mysql version in the system.
I created mysqld(with a unique name mysqltest) as service.
I'm setting up an image for a webserver. I have a script on the server that fetches the latest source code for an application from a repository and does all the configuration necessary for deployment. This script is to be run by the unprivileged user for deployment.
1. System boots
2. Apache starts
3. I log in, run my script, and restart apache
I have created a deployment application. It uses two git repos. One holds the application branches, another the DB branches.
On the deployment application you select the application version and DB version and the deployment application grabs both and creates a new environment on the server (it's a web application) and creates a new DB from scratch from the version you selected.....
Is anyone aware of a tool for automating the creation and deployment of virtual machines across different hypervisor platforms? I work on web applications running on EC2, Xen, KVM, and VMWare, and I'm currently writing separate deployment scripts for each platform.
