I am installing Gold- with the following:

# mysql -V
mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.67, for suse-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.2

# perl -v
This is perl, v5.10.0 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi

# suidperl -v
This is perl, v5.10.0 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi

# rpm -qa | grep libxml2

The remaining [OPTIONAL] prereqs are already installed.

My query is this: There are no specific intructions for initial configuration for a MySQL install. In the "Database Setup" section of the latest User Guide, there is a reference to SQLite as not needing any configuring, and you also provide instructions on initialising the PostgreSQL install.

Do you have any suggestions or recommendations for a MySQL install (i.e. new user account, IP access, db creation, etc.) or should one just assume the equivalent steps are necessary for MySQL as are documented for PostgreSQL?
