Installing and Configuring MySQL

The MySQL database system is a free implementation of a database system based on Structured Query Language (SQL). MySQL has been successfully deployed for a number of high-end applications on websites such as NASA, Yahoo!, and Slashdot. In addition to the database package itself, MySQL has JDBC and ODBC drivers available, making it accessible from any platform supporting these standards, including Microsoft Windows.

NOTE

The letters SQL are pronounced “S-Q-L,” not “sequel,” which is typically associated with Microsoft's SQL Server. MySQL, as documented on http://www.mysql.com, is pronounced “My S-Q-L.”
