Frictionless MySQL installation
I saw an interesting post about the ability of installing MySQL 5.7 without changing existing tools and procedures. The post is a plea to make MySQL installation frictionless. That post was followed by a conversation on Twitter , where the recent security e...

MySQL 5.7.8 : features, bugs and rumors
I’ve had a look at a preview release of MySQL 5.7.8, some time before it became available to the general public (perks and duties of an Oracle ACE ) and I found a few interesting things among the release notes and the tarball itself: There is a new tool nam...

Yet another MySQL 5.7 silent change
When a new version of MySQL appears, the first source of information for the brave experimenter is a page in the manual named What is new in MySQL X.X , also known as MySQL in a nutshell . For MySQL 5.7, the in-a-nutshell page lists quite a lot of changes. ...

MYSQL Sandbox 3.0.55 and new Github replication script
Both MySQL and MariaDB have been busy, each introducing new features, sometimes creating the same feature, often with different syntax. This is sometimes good for users, who have a wide choice. And sometimes it is bad, as once you are used to the deployment...

MySQL 5.7 comes with many changes . Some of them are better explained than others. I wanted to see how many changes I could get by comparing SHOW VARIABLES in MySQL 5.6 and 5.7. The most notable ones are: binlog_format : the default is now ROW. This variabl...

MySQL 5.7 : no more password column!
Maintaining a project like MySQL::Sandbox is sometimes tiring, but it has its advantages. One of them is that everything related to the server setup comes to my attention rather earlier than if I were an average DBA or developer. I try to keep MySQL Sandbox...
