1.6.4 The Server Type Dialog
There are three different server types available to choose from.
The server type that you choose affects the decisions that the
MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard makes with regard to
memory, disk, and processor usage.
: Choose this
option for a typical desktop workstation where MySQL is
intended only for personal use. It is assumed that many other
desktop applications are running. The MySQL server is
configured to use minimal system resources.
: Choose this option
for a server machine where the MySQL server is running
alongside other server applications such as FTP, email, and
Web servers. The MySQL server is configured to use a moderate
portion of the system resources.
Choose this option for a server machine that is intended to
run only the MySQL server. It is assumed that no other
applications are running. The MySQL server is configured to
use all available system resources.
By selecting one of the preconfigured configurations, the values
and settings of various options in your
be altered accordingly. The default values and options as
described in the reference manual may therefore be different to
the options and values that were created during the execution of
the configuration wizard.
