DB MySQL 5.0 server install v1

Open in Dashboard

Published by Mentor Solutions Application Team - Ryan Geyer on Oct 29, 2010Revision: 1


A minor adjustment to the DB MySQL 5.0 server install v8 script. It's been gutted of all CentOS support, and it now creates the db admin user that get's used throughout.

Installs MySQL on server, configured and started.


Configures MySQL with one of the predefined templates based on the instance type.

Currently 2 main option types exist:

  • dedicated (where the mysql config allocates all existing resources of the machine)
  • shared (where the mysql is configured to use less resources so that it can be run concurrently with other apps like apache and rails for example)

The name of the input variable must match the name of an attachment, without the extension.

First launch

Installed and configures database. All old configuration is replaced and mysql is installed with a new mysql default database. This version of the script will configure the placements of binlogs in a directory different from the data directory.


This script is skipped on a REBOOT of the server. The MySQL Server is restarted.
