MySQL Help Tables

Title Version Download
MySQL Help Tables 8.0
MySQL Help Tables 5.7
MySQL Help Tables 5.6
MySQL Help Tables 5.5

To use: Download, uncompress, then load into MySQL with this command:

mysql mysql < file_name

If the server is a replication master and you want to avoid replicating the content to replication slaves, use this command:

mysql --init-command="SET sql_log_bin=0" mysql < file_name

As of MySQL 5.7.5, the SET statement is included in the file, so the --init-command option is not needed.
