anyone have MySQL precompiled for AIX?
« on: September 16, 2019, 01:01:20 PM »
Hi
I am after a hassle free MySQL database to install on a 7.2 server for a month or so. I currently have MySQLv3, but we are up to v8 now. Just wondered if anyone knew where there was a more up to date rpm that I could install, ideally without licencing costs. ;)

Hi Seamus,

I downloaded mysql for AIX from the Sun/Mysql area just before they disappeared from the HP site.

The are "tar" balls, I have not ever tried them on AIX 7.x, but they should work.

See http://download.aixtools.net/mysql/

I also have experimented with building MariaDB, but not the latest versions as they have too many GNU dependencies. I can re-visit that if the MySQL packages at http://download.aixtools.net/mysql/ are not working for you.

Hope this helps!

Michael
