I couldn't make instructions on INSTALL.mysql.txt work.
I'm using the telnet/ssh client - PuTTY.
I followed the Drupal install instruction, wget http://drupal..., etc. w/o an issue. Yeh!
I moved to the MySQL database stuff and got stuck. I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS FROM CPANEL, but from the command line, via PuTTY (which also works as a MySQL command line cleint).
I type in mysql from the command line and get:
root@www1 [~]# mysql
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is [connection ID] to server version: 4.1.21-standard
Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
This is where the breakdown is... The instructions on INSTALL.mysql.txt
First, you must create a new database for your Drupal site (here, 'databasename'
is the name of the new database):
mysqladmin -u username -p create databasename
MySQL will prompt for the 'username' database password and then create the
initial database files. Next you must login and set the access database rights:
mysql -u username -p
Again, you will be asked for the 'username' database password. At the MySQL
prompt, enter following command:
GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, CREATE
TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES
TO 'username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
I'm not sure what to type in?
