MySQL Internals Manual make install, make test

An install target is provided for Makefile-based generators. The installation directory can be controlled using the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX option at configuration time (default is /usr). It is also possible to install to non-configured directory at installation time:

make install DESTDIR="/some/absolute/path"
  • make test runs unit tests (uses CTest for it).

  • make test-force runs tests with the --test-force option.
