How to install mysql 5 on Solaris 8


I need to install mysql (version 5.0) on a Solaris box. It is Solaris 8 on a Sparc, 32 bit.


First you need to download the proper package:


You can find links to download on

Unzip it.

Before you can install this package, you need to create a mysql user and a mysql group. I also needed to create some folders and give this new user mysql access to it.

See the script below:

groupadd mysql
 useradd -g mysql mysql
 mkdir /var/mysql
 chgrp -R mysql /var/mysql
 chmod -R 770 /var/mysql
 pkgadd -d mysql_solaris.pkg
