Book Description

MySQL is the most popular open-source database and is also known for its easy set up feature. However, proper configuration beyond the default settings remains a challenge, along with day-to-day maintenance tasks such as configuration, server monitoring and managing user credentials.

This MySQL Admin Cookbook LITE book provides both step-by-step recipes and relevant background information on many basic and advanced aspects of MySQL administration and configuration.

Three key aspects of MySQL administration are covered in detail; monitoring and analyzing a MySQL installation, configuring MySQL, helping you, amongst other things, to regain lost administrative user credentials, and managing users by assigning privileges.
All of the recipes are based on real-world experience derived from proven solutions used in an enterprise environment.
