Easy MySql Install on RHEL AS4

The RHEL AS4 server had an active RHN membership so installing MySQL server was a quick and easy. Here are the commands:

# up2date –install mysql-server

# /sbin/service mysqld start

# mysqladmin -u root password “my_root_password”

# mysqladmin -u root -h localhost -p password “my_root_password”

The last command will prompt for a password. Enter the value for “my_root_password”.

And that’s all there was to it!
