MySQL

Linux

Installation

You can get MySQL from conda-forge

conda install xeus-sql soci-mysql jupyterlab -c conda-forge

Usage

To use MySQL from inside a notebook you need to first edit your MySQL configuration file that can usually be found at /etc/mysql/my.cnf:

[server]
socket=/tmp/mysql.sock

[client]
socket=/tmp/mysql.sock

To run the example notebook you’ll need to load the dbname database or create one for yourself:

CREATE DATABASE dbname;
CREATE TABLE example ( id smallint unsigned not null auto_increment, name varchar(20) not null, constraint pk_example primary key (id) );

You will also need to create a new user and grant access to it to the newly create database. You can achieve this with the following lines in your MySQL console:

CREATE USER 'user1'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'Password123#@!';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dbname.* TO ‘user1’@’localhost’;

Note that it might be necessary to install MySQL from different sources other than conda if you intend to manipulate users and creation of databases.
