Installing mysql from source

Recommended Posts


I was using this command to install mysql:

yum install mysql-server mysql php-mysql mysql-devel

And now i want to try the custom install on my Centos server and i need some help on how to do it from source.

I will need Myisam and Innodb support.

I will use it for invision forum.

Please send me some instructions to do the custom setup with correct parameters to use for a forum.

Thank you

I strongly discourage you from using a source build unless you need to. If you want a kickass but stable build of MySQL then use Percona's build. It is fantastic, well supported and includes all the stuff you want and nothing you don't.

Please do yourself a favor and head on over to their synopsis page:


Everything will tell you that Percona Server is the shiznitz. They have a yum repo:


They have free hot backup:


Building from source is messy and not worth your time.
