MySQL overview

MySQL, the industry-leading open-source SQL database, is an accessible, easy-to-use relational database management system (RDBMS). As an alternative to Oracle and SQL server, MySQL offers features and capabilities that were once only available to users of expensive proprietary systems.

What’s new in version 8.0.30

Updated on Jul 27 2022

  • Important Change: A previous change renamed character sets having deprecated names prefixed with utf8_ to use utf8mb3_ instead. In this release, we rename the utf8_ collations as well, using the utf8mb3_ prefix; this is to make the collation names consistent with those of the character sets, not to rely any longer on the deprecated collation names, and to clarify the distinction between utf8mb3 and utf8mb4. The names using the utf8mb3_ prefix are now used exclusively for these collations in the output of SHOW statements such as SHOW CREATE TABLE, as well as in the values displayed in the columns of Information Schema tables including the COLLATIONS and COLUMNS tables. (Bug #33787300)

Full release notes are available here.

New version 8.0.13. This version requires system 10.13 or 10.14. The intermediate versions of the version, required 10.12. The previous versions of 8 (8.0.0 dmr)accepted 10.11 but I think they withdrew the support before the initial final version. Browsing your website, I only see the final version (not beta or prior) compatible with 10.11 version 5.7.16. In MU, they offer 5.7.17 as compatible, but the MySQL site mentions only 10.12. Are versions of 10.12 compatible with 10.11? Can I then use version 5.7.20? Why do not they already offer support for 10.11 with security updates for some previous version? It was not my favorite, because it needs a lot of previous study to use. But the price of FileMaker, and its obsolescence made me consider this option. I see that there is no other solution to pay, and stay updated forever. With new computer as the Apple gurus send, every 9 months :-)

I have a small library card catalogue archive for which I'm going to build a database. Each card might have 3 separate entries on it...probably a total of around 14,000 cards. Will MySQL work for me?

Why o why does MacUpdate track Unix software in the main Mac software channel? Just a suggestion, but i would prefer it if you had a separate tab/category for server software, daemons, CLI utilities and the like. That way, the 90% who don't use it won't have to contend with the added entries on the tracker. (I do personally use a lot of server-oriented software and CLI tools, so i would personally check that category for updates. But my preference would be to separate them out to another category listing.)

The MU download only provides some 0.5kb (!) tar.gz file, and the developer link only leads to some fairly small-sized search engine code. However, the below link seems to provide the full-on file in several formats for OS 10.6: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

This is odd. The MySQL download page lists 5.5.12 as the lastest version, and 5.1.57 as an older version. Yet MacUpdate is linking to 5.1.57. What gives?

Version 5.0.51 has just been released, however, it doesn't work out of the box on my Mac with OS X 10.5.2. I've filed a bug report that contains a workaround that circumvents the permissions issues. However, this is okay for a development Mac like min, you MUST NOT do it on a production system. http://bugs.mysql.com/34814

Unfortunately, many developers seem to believe that MySQL is a 'free' product, when it isn't. Its licensing scheme is quite restrictive for professional production. Although newer versions are more stable, have more of the *basic, required* features that make a database engine a 'true' database system (such as foreign key support, and transaction rollback), the truth is that there are other systems out there - such as the excellent and much under-used PostreSQL - which, in my experience, have a less restrictive license, are more advanced, supporting more standard features, and still just as cross-platform.

What happened to the package installer? I installed the x86 version two weeks ago, and it had a packaged installer. I had to reinstall today (reinstalled the OS), and all of the installers on MySQL's site are command line only. I'm certain I got the Mac x86 packaged installer from MySQL's site. What happened to it?

The MySQL package for Mac OS X makes the basic installation procedure a snap (as opposed to the old process that required building and installing it from the command line). The System Preferences pane is handy, too - although it could do with providing access to a few more options, too. You still have to do a bit of manual setup, but it's getting easier and easier. Be sure to get the free MySQL Administrator application (also from MySQL AB) for a Mac OS X graphical front end to administration of MySQL.

No problem with opening .dmg Take care to download the right version for your OSX 10.x Easy install. I manage my databases with phpMyAdmin. For Mathematica afficionados : don't forget that Mathematica can connect (but you need to update to mysql-connector-java-3.1.10-bin.jar) to mysql databases, manages queries and handles datas. A delight.

Does not work. I've tried installing this about 4 times, following the instructions PRECISELY, and this thing just refuses to run. A web search reveals this happens to MANY people. If you can't make a package that'll run and install correctly, don't bother putting out a product!

For simple tasks like phpBB forums, php forms, and other lightweight uses, this is the ticket. It's efficient, clean, and quick. It's a great little SQL for small web tasks, and getting better. If you're looking for JDBC work, or for heavier tasks such as major commercial shopping carts, go to FrontBase. They have a free dev (tell they why you want to use it is all they ask) and a free liteweight deployment license, and it's good all the way up to serious WebObjects development. (I used to recommend OpenBase, but they've gotten greedy, especially with WO dev.)

Great intro to SQL databases. The feature set with MySQL is getting better and is free for personal use. For *ANY* business application they suggest you purchase a license @ $500 and are looking to enforce that policy in the future. I will use MySQL for little stuff like weblogs... but for large scale applications. PostgreSQL is the only way to go.. totally free!
