Ubuntu LAMP Server MySQL Database Configuration

Nov 24, 2009, 15:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Andrew Weber for this link. ]

"The MySQL server provides the database that will be connected with PHP and Apache. Installation is easily done with apt-get.

sudo apt-get install mysql-server

"During the process you will be asked to create a password for the root user for MySQL. Note this is not the root user for the Linux system and the accounts should have different passwords. Be sure to write down the password. When the installation program completes, you can use the netstat utility to verify that MySQL is running correctly:

sudo netstat -tap | grep mysql
tcp 0 0 localhost:mysql *:* LISTEN 844/mysqld"
