http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I am trying to install mysql-5.0.96.tar.gz on my laptop(i5). I have found following commands from a website: Quote: To install and use a MySQL binary distribution, the basic command sequence looks like this: shell> groupadd mysql shell> useradd -r -g mysql mysql shell> cd /usr/local shell> tar zxvf /path/to/mysql-VERSION-OS.tar.gz shell> ln -s full-path-to-mysql-VERSION-OS mysql shell> cd mysql shell> chown -R mysql . shell> chgrp -R mysql . shell> scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql shell> chown -R root . shell> chown -R mysql data (HowTos)
