Step 3: Installing MySQL

All information in the Infoglue platform is stored in a database. This database could be almost any JDBC-2 compliant database and we supply scripts/automation for MySQL, SQL-Server, DB2 and Oracle.

This tutorial will instruct how to install the fast, competent and free MySQL database. You can fetch it from www.mysql.com. Infoglue supports version 4 or later but strongly suggests version 5.0 or above as a number of limitations has been removed in that version.

Install the database as instructed by the MySQL documentation.

If you want to use large attachments on your sites like large images or movies you must follow the instructions on http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Packet_too_large.html. The standard limit is about 1Mb so you will probably want to change that settings pretty soon.
