I'm looking for automation direction...
I've found many packages that sit on top of MySQL. For the purposes of
consistency I'd like to automate these installs.
I've been able to automate the install and configuration of everything
except the mysql part.
I'm using CentOS 5.5. Installing/verifying is no big deal.
It's the MySQL configuration that's holding me up.
Basically I've created an expect script. It works 99% but it's a PITA to
finish. Here's what I'd like to accomplish:
*Set the default admin password
# mysqladmin -u root password 'root-password'
*login to mysql
mysql> mysql -u root -p
*Drop the anonymous accounts
mysql> DELETE FROM mysql.user WHERE user = '';
*Sync all of the root passwords
mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password = PASSWORD('root-password')
WHERE User = 'root';
*Remove the test database:
mysql> drop database test;
In another script I would like to create databases for specific
Concrete5, for example needs:
GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, ALTER ON
concrete5.db TO 'admin'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'admin-password';
If there is a better way to do this than using expect I would greatly
appreciate any pointers in the right direction. Bash is comfortable for
me and perl is within reach. I'm not much versed in anything else right now.
Thanks for the assist,
