I already have MySQL version 3.23.55, but I can not install it. How do I install this database. Please don't tell me to look into www.mysql.com because the information there is pretty messy.

Have you got the tar.gz files or the rpms?

I have mysql-3.23.55.tar.gz under /tmp/src and I did this:

gunzip -dc mysql-3.23.55.tar.gz ¦ tar.xv
cd mysql-3.23.55
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
make
make install
scripts/mysql_install_db

Everything works fine until I have to type this:

/usr/local/bin/safe_mysqld &

In that line I get an error message saying that it could not locate the server.

Have you set up the correct users and groups..? Btw, why are you compiling it yourself? Usually the binary runs fine out of the box, and is much easier to install. (Takes about five mins)

Oh, and if the prefix is .'/usr/local/mysql' should you not be using '/usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld &'?

Weel... I am not very into linux, so many of the terms used are not commun to me, but I am trying to learn them and to move from windows to linux.

Could anyone tell me what MYSQL I should download for redhat 7.3 and how I can install it?

Do yourself a favor and use the RPMs from your disk set. They're there for a reason.

RPM is a format of packaging. All the applications that were installed along with your system were originally packed on a .rpm file.

Your distribution should have an update application. Run it and it should list the packages available for installation. Probably it will ask for the CD.
