    Ok, I have been reading the Articles and I have found out that my server doesn't have it installed, so I will have to install my own. My server is a lenix server and I use a windows computer at home, what programs would I download? And how much space will this take up on my server?

    If you install PHP/MySQL at home, you won't be able to use PHP on your web host. You need to have PHP/MySQL on the server if you want to run PHP.

    PHP and MySQL take up very little space (especially when you consider the size of rhe hard drives in servers). You would have to download the appropriate versions of PHP and MySQL. I believe that the newest version of MySQL costs some money while the Unix version is free.

    I'm not so sure if the Windows version of MySQL will cost anything anymore. When VA Linux paid TCX, the makers of MySQL, they GPL'ed the UNIX code. It will be fairly easy to port, as TCX themselves uses Cygwin's DLLs to make UNIX programs ported to Windows...the port process much easier.

    The story is on the front page of www.slashdot.org right now.

    The Windows version is indeed being released under GPL now. This affects all beta and full versions released on or after June 28th 2000. You can download the latest version of MySQL for Windows (3.23.19 as of this writing) from http://www.mysql.com/ or one of its mirrors.
