For more information on managing the bundled MySQL instance in Mac OS X Server 10.5, see Mac OS X Server: Web Technologies Administration For Version 10.5 Leopard.
For more information on managing the bundled MySQL instance in Mac OS X Server 10.6, see Mac OS X Server: Web Technologies Administration Version 10.6 Snow Leopard.
The MySQL server bundled with Mac OS X Server does not include the MySQL client libraries and header files required to access and use MySQL from a third-party driver, such as Perl DBI or PHP. For more information on obtaining and installing MySQL libraries, see Mac OS X Server version 10.5: MySQL libraries available for download. Alternatively, you can ignore the bundled MySQL server and install MySQL from the package or tarball installation.
