In addition to using the embedded HyperSQL database, you can install a MySQL database or use an existing MySQL or Oracle database. The following procedure explains how to install a new MySQL database.

Prerequisites

See System Requirements for supported versions of MySQL.

Linux (Red Hat)

  1. Download MySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/. Be sure to select the correct download for the correct platform and architecture. 
  2. Log into the system as root.
  3. Install MySQL Server.

rpm –i MySQL-server-<version>.<arch>.rpm

By default, MySQL is configured to start when the system starts.


To start MySQL manually:

/etc/init.d/mysql start


To stop MySQL manually:

/etc/init.d/mysql stop


To restart MySQL manually:

/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Windows

  1. Download MySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/. Be sure to select the correct download for the correct platform and architecture. 
  2. You should delete C:\Users\All Users\MySQL if MySQL had been previously installed. 
  3. Run the installer as Administrator. 
  4. Add the MySQL bin folder to the system PATH. For example:

    set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 8\bin

MySQL will be automatically configured to start when the system starts.

To start MySQL manually, run services.msc and look for the MySQL8 service.
