MySQL on Fedora 27

While updating my class image to Fedora 27, I noticed that it installed the Akonadi Server. The documentation on the Akonadi server lacked some straightforward documentation. It also offered a bundled set of software that limited how to approach MySQL development.

So, I removed all those packages with the following syntax:

dnf remove `rpm -qa | grep akonadi`

After removing those Akonadi packages, I installed the MySQL Community Edition from the Fedora repo with this syntax:

yum install -y community-mysql*

Having installed MySQL Community Edition, I started the service with this command:

sudo service mysql start

Then, I ran the mysql_secure_installation script to secure the installation:


The script set the root user’s password, remove the anonymous user, disallow remote root login, and remove the test databases. Then, I verified connecting to the MySQL database with the following syntax:

mysql -uroot -ppassword

I enabled the MySQL Service to start with each reboot of the Fedora instance. I used the following command:

systemctl enable mysqld.service

It creates the following link:

ln -s '/etc/systemd/system/' '/usr/lib/systemd/system/mysqld.service'

Now, I need to install and configure Apache, PHP, and upgrade Oracle Database 11g XE’s APEX 4 to 5.
