OurDelta MySQL on EC2 – install


Arjen would give me an earful if I got this wrong or poorly worded.

“OurDelta produces enhanced builds for MySQL, with OurDelta and third-party patches, for common production platforms” from http://ourdelta.org/about

Over the next series of articles I am going to put the many additions to the MySQL 5.0 baseline through their paces on Amazon EC2.

Using a base CentOS 4.4 I had lying around on Amazon S3 I had Ourdelta installed and secure in no time flat.

This is outline for the installing Ourdelta onto CentOS 4


yum install yum-plugin-protectbase
rpm --import http://mirror.ourdelta.org/deb/ourdelta.gpg
rpm -Uvh http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/OurDelta-release-0.0.4-1.noarch.rpm
mkdir downloads
cd downloads/
wget http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/4/i386/RPMS/MySQL-OurDelta-server-5.0.67.d7-44.el4_7.i386.rpm
wget http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/4/i386/RPMS/MySQL-OurDelta-shared-5.0.67.d7-44.el4_7.i386.rpm
wget http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/4/i386/RPMS/MySQL-OurDelta-test-5.0.67.d7-44.el4_7.i386.rpm
wget http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/4/i386/RPMS/MySQL-OurDelta-client-5.0.67.d7-44.el4_7.i386.rpm
wget http://mirror.ourdelta.org/yum/CentOS/4/i386/RPMS/MySQL-OurDelta-devel-5.0.67.d7-44.el4_7.i386.rpm
yum localinstall MySQL-OurDelta-*
ps -ef|grep mysql
mysql -u root -p


Thats it. Straightforward install.
I am getting lazy in my old age I used a pipe combo to generate the install commands using this:

history |grep -v history|awk ‘{ print $2″ “$3” “$4 }’

The next article will cover the upgrade of any existing MySQL 5.0 release to OurDelta.
I have saved this Ourdelta MySQL install as an AMI.

If people are interested in making this a public AMI please post a comment.

Have Fun

  1. I was wondering when someone would point that out.After I published it I realized that yes, yum install MySQL-OurDelta-server would have installed the server.I will update the post to add that.

  2. Sorry been busy and this blog doesn’t pay any bills.Thanks for the feedback.I will see about the AMI. The only downside with using a OurDelta MySQL AMI is it sets in stone which version you are using.More later.
