Setting up MySQL Server and GUI Client tools on Ubuntu Gutsy

  1. Type the following in the terminal: “sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-query-browser mysql-admin” (Note: You can read the manual of any command by invoking the “man” command and providing the command’s name as its parameter, e.g. “man apt-get”
  2. I don’t like services to be running in my RAM without need, and that’s unfortunately the default after you setup your environment. Go to System>Administration>Services and scroll down till you find three Database Server entries, unselect them (Reselect them of course when you need to work with it again)
