MySQL Relational Databases on Ubuntu 12.04

Table of Content

MySQL is a relational database management system that is available for free online. You can say it like this: (RDBMS). The name comes from the combination of "My," which is the name of co-founder Michael Widenius's daughter, and the acronym for Structured Query Language (SQL).

Web and server applications frequently use the well-liked database management system MySQL.

Installing, configuring, and managing MySQL will be covered in detail in this guide.

*Installing MySQL

#sudo apt-get install mysql-server

During installation, you'll be prompted to set a MySQL root password. Keep your password safe.

*MySQL Server secure installation

#sudo mysql_secure_installation

*Root Login

*Make a New User in MySQL and Database

#create database microhostdb;
#create user 'microhost'@localhost identified by 'password';
#grant all on microhostdb.* to 'microhost';

*Creating the user and assigning database access privileges at the same time can speed up the process significantly:

#create database microhostdb;
#grant all on microhostdb.* to 'microhost' identified by 'password';

*Produce a Model of the Table.

#mysql -u microhost -p
#use microhostdb;
#create table customers (customer_id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, first_name TEXT, last_name TEXT);

*Password-reset MySQL root user

You can reset your root MySQL password if you forget it.

*Stop the currently running MySQL server.

#sudo service mysql stop

*Use dpkg to re-run the setup process that MySQL goes through the first time it is installed. You'll be asked to set a root password once more.

#sudo dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.5

*You should now be able to log in once more by using the command mysql -u root -p.

*Tune MySQL

*From Ubuntu's software repositories, install MySQL Tuner.

#sudo apt-get install mysqltuner

*To operate it:
