MySQL is the most popular open-source database and is also known for its easy set up feature. However, proper configuration beyond the default settings remains a challenge, along with day-to-day maintenance tasks such as indexing and replication. These tasks have not been covered thoroughly in the default documentation.
This MySQL Admin Cookbook LITE covers two key aspects of MySQL administration in detail; replication, which will allow you to organize your database more efficiently, and indexing, which enables you to access information even in the deepest, darkest depths of your largest databases.
All of the recipes are based on real-world experience which were derived from proven solutions used in an enterprise environment.
