Subject:RE: How to become a DBA on MySQL
View as plain text  
Sorry, I wish I did.

I've used courses at lvsonline.com for all kinds of things (programming, 
graphics, etc.), but I didn't see anything about MySQL DBA. All of the courses 
I took there were good. They all had lab work that you submitted to the 
instructor.

DBA might not lend itself to that.
