2005-12-19 Today I tried to actually install mysql ... 14 years ago
Today I tried to actually install mysql and make it do something. I had a negative opinion about mysql before ("not a real database" and associated things).. and it got even more negative trying to make it actually do something useful. This was mysql 4.1 (default stable version with centos). The help did not match the actual database version (ok, this is more a package problem than a mysql problem probably) and what I think are normal commands for user management aren't supported. Creating users is a side effect of granting them rights (like wtf?) and user@localhost has different rights from user@% (the rest of the hosts, where you can also use other hostsmasks, including those depending on dns.. brrr!). Time to get back to real databases.
