Updating mysql server
My SQL Enterprise Server is differentiated by a series of proprietary extensions which install as server plugins, but otherwise shares the version numbering system and is built from the same code base.
As part of the negotiations with the European Commission, Oracle committed that My SQL server will continue until at least 2015 to use the dual-licensing strategy long used by My SQL AB, with proprietary and GPL versions available.Oracle offers paid support via its My SQL Enterprise products. Additionally, a number of third party organisations exist to provide support and services, including Maria DB and Percona.My SQL has received positive reviews, and reviewers noticed it "performs extremely well in the average case" and that the "developer interfaces are there, and the documentation (not to mention feedback in the real world via Web sites and the like) is very, very good". It was initially created for personal usage from m SQL based on the low-level language ISAM, which the creators considered too slow and inflexible.The antitrust of the EU had been "pressuring it to divest My SQL as a condition for approval of the merger".But, as revealed by Wiki Leaks, the US Department of Justice, at the request of Oracle, pressured the EU to approve the merger unconditionally.and "SQL", the abbreviation for Structured Query Language.
The My SQL development project has made its source code available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, as well as under a variety of proprietary agreements.
It is still most commonly used in small to medium scale single-server deployments, either as a component in a LAMP-based web application or as a standalone database server.
Much of My SQL's appeal originates in its relative simplicity and ease of use, which is enabled by an ecosystem of open source tools such as php My Admin.
In 2002, My SQL AB sued Progress Nu Sphere for copyright and trademark infringement in United States district court.
Nu Sphere had allegedly violated My SQL's copyright by linking My SQL's GPL'ed code with Nu Sphere Gemini table without being in compliance with the license.
On most Linux distributions, the package management system can download and install My SQL with minimal effort, though further configuration is often required to adjust security and optimization settings.
