 MySQL Configuration Article
Author: James Dowdell 
Date:   19-02-03 00:14

Hey, thanks for putting this thing on the web! I was floundering around trying to get mysql installed (especially the deal with the invalid hostname), and this thing touched on everything I was having problems with, to where I installed no problem! It also mentioned a bunch of tips on security that I frankly wouldn't have thought of myself. I'm sure there are many other newbs like me out there, and while some experts may find the article too patronizing or "hold-your-hand" like, I'm sure articles like this help the rest of us. Thanks for spelling it out for me!

Often the biggest problem in getting something running is the first step.

As for the "experts", if they find it patronizing, they are forgetting what it was like to not be an "expert". Just because some people can remember every detail of how to set up a connection, doesn't mean everyone has to. Minute details are what documentation is for. There are more important things to know than the syntax for a function call....

Just wanted to ditto the comment by James, I'm trying to get to grips with php/mysql, I still class myself as a newbie after nearly two years using FreeBSD. Could not even begin to count the number of times the FreeBSD Diary has pulled me out of the mire, great work, great site, thanks Dan.
