Installing MySQL

MySQL is installed before the Unravel RPM. After the RPM installation, you then configure MySQL.

1. Install a compatible version of MySQL server and database.
2. Configure and start MySQL server.


Steps 3 and 4 must be run on the Unravel server.

3. Install the MySQL JDBC driver.

Download the JDBC driver for MySQL to /tmp. Then navigate to /tmp and extract the driver.

wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/Connector-J/mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz -O /tmp/mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz
cd /tmp
tar xvzf /tmp/mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz
4. Install MySQL.
yum install mysql
