Cookbook for MySQL


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to run MySQL cookbook on an RHEL instance which is not yet
subscribed. As a result the cookbook is unable to download the mysql files from
the yum repo.
Is there any other cookbook which downloads files from locations other than the
yum repo?

Thanks in advance.

None I’ve ever seen, no.

If you’re using RHEL, you’re not going to get far with any community
cookbooks (rightfully) until your host is subscribed to RHN.

You could write a cookbook that uses the new Oracle yum repository as
that would sidestep the RHN subscription reqiurement.

Hi.

So, its not quite that easy… the mysql server packages that exist
have a lot of package dependencies.
The one shipped in the rhel/centos channels have around 10

So, you’d need to host each package and their dependencies on a web server…
… which would give you a yum repository.

If you want to use the mysql cookbook on the community site, you could
try pointing your box a the CentOS repositories (or an internally
hosted mirror) with the yum-centos cookbook

PS: the current mysql cookbook uses the oracle yum repos to get the
versions that the distros stopped shipping when switching to MariaDB.
