Installing MySQL on Ubuntu Linux
I'm having trouble installing MySQL Community Server on Ubuntu Linux. I'm following the intstructions from Build*Your*Own Database*Driven*Web*Site Using*PHP*&*MySQL, 4th Edition - SitePoint Books.
First off, it says to look for a tar.gz file, and there isn't one.
When I use the .tar file that the website recommends for linux, the terminal complains that its not a tar.gz file.
I did try a tar.gz file from way down the list of downloads, but this didn't work either. When I got to the stage of installing the database files, it couldn't find the right directory.
Can anyone help?
