Installing MySQL0:42 with Randy Hoyt
This video introduces the ways we can install MySQL.
[Randy Hoyt] Now that you've seen what a simple SQL statement looks like, let's get MySQL running on your local server.
Packages like MAMP and XAMPP install PHP and MySQL together.
If you used one of those to install PHP, then you've probably already installed MySQL as well.
If you used a different approach for installing PHP, you can check out the installing MySQL server badge
in Database Foundations for installing MySQL directly.
In the next 3 videos, I'll show you what you need to do to get MySQL running 3 different ways—
with MAMP on Mac OS 10, with XAMPP on Windows, and with a Standalone instance of MySQL.
You only need to watch the video that corresponds to what you'll be using.
After you have MySQL running you can skip ahead to the next quiz.
