Subject:Trimming down a MySQL installation
View as plain text  
I am installing MySQL on a server with limited space available and I'd 
like to minimize the footprint of the installed database.  is there 
information available on what parts of the installation I can safely 
delete without harming functionality of the database?

I'd love to hear recommendations from the experts out there before I just 
hack-and-slash through the mysql directory.

Thanks in advance,
