  • create dedicated sub page dedicated to MySQL setup for Fedora
  • edit code block to show connecting to MySQL database server

To setup the MySQL Database for Fedora...

 Assuming MySQL database software is currently installed, execute the following:

$ mysql -u [your-mysql-user]
mysql> create database [fedoradatabase];
mysql> GRANT ALL ON [fedoradatabase].* TO [fedoradbuser] IDENTIFIED BY [password]; 

mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> exit

Customizing your MySQL setup

Be sure to change:

  • [your-mysql-user] to whatever MySQL User you use to manage your MySQL installation
  • [fedoradatabase] to the name of the database Fedora will use to store its data
  • [fedoradbuser] to the MySQL User that Fedora will use to manage the its data
  • [password] to the password that [fedoradbuser] will use to connect to [fedoradatabase]
