MySQL Database on Mac OS X

November 19, 2002

Apple's Developer Site has released an article to introduce Internet Developers to MySQL as a database for driving Web applications. Topics covered in the article include an overview of MySQL's features and drawbacks, installing and setting up a secure MySQL installation on Mac OS X, adding users, configuring and compiling the software and more.

Here's an excerpt from the article: "For a time, some developers avoided MySQL for commercial applications because it did not implement certain features, such as transactions. But this is no longer the case, and MySQL is a great choice for just about any Web-based application. MySQL is a great database for Web applications and a great complement to a Mac OS X development environment. Install it on your machine and create applications in Perl, PHP, JSP, or whatever languages you like best."
