c2d mySQL notes

c2d uses mySQL as their database. This product is open source and available in most linux distributions. The webserver must be able to handle PHP.



If you are not the system administrator on your machine, and/or not allowed to be root, you may have to run apache and mysql in local mode. This should be possible, but we have not tried this out. So, for the remainder of this we shall assume you have root access.

It is also assumed you have installed apache (or any webserver that is PHP enabled) and mysq via your local system installation procedures (e.g. on redhat-like machines you will have used rpm). The actual incantations how to start/enable. For example, on redhat you can use the command

	chkconfig --list
to confirm if httpd and mysqld are services that have been started up.
