MySQL & PostgreSQL Database Installers for Lion

Category : Technology/LionDBs.txt

I've uploaded new Lion versions of our database installers - for MySQL and PostgreSQL. They come with their own Startup Preference Panes that you can install into System Preferences. I've tested them. They work great.

The MySQL version this installs is 5.1.57. We'll want to build a version for MySQL 5.5.x and get everything we do aligned with that.

The PostgreSQL version is the current latest, 9.0.4. There's a PostgreSQL bundled within Lion but I haven't figured how to turn that on. But there's an advantage to using our own because I think we can keep up with the changes at Postgres faster than if we depend on Apple and our installer upgrades our database data automatically with each update. And, finally, we can get rid of our own PostgreSQL setup cleanly when we don't need them.
