Launching Your First MySQL DB System
Step 1 - Pre-requisites
1. 1. Create
a compartment and
user group to
organize the resources and access. In this example, we create a compartment
a group MySQL_Test_Group. Log-in the Console as
under the Identity menu, create a
MySQL_Sandbox compartment, and
the OCI user you will use to work with MySQL Database Service to the group.
the required MySQL Database Service policies (Identity
menu). In our example, if your user is in the group
you want to restrict your MySQL DB Systems to the compartment
the following policy statements:
a. Policy statement 1:
b. Policy statement 2:
3. The following policy statement is also required for Console use if you would like to list tag namespaces when creating new DB System resources:
a. Policy statement 3:
C create a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN). Just click on the "Start VCN Wizard" button, choose "VCN with Internet Connectivity", give a name, confirm the compartment, keep the default CIDR blocks (10.0.0.0/16, 10.0.0.0/24, 10.0.1.0/24) and DNS Resolution options, then click the buttons "Next", and finally "Create".
Step 2 - Create a MySQL DB System
1. Using the Console, select the menu Database > MySQL > DB Systems > Create MySQL DB System.
your DB System preferences, ensuring you choose the compartment where your
VCN and Subnets are configured from the pre-requisites. Give your DB System a
name, select the Availability Domain and Fault Domain you want to place your DB
System. Then you can choose a configuration, as the
define the Storage Size and click the "Next" button.
1. You will now provide the Database information: MySQL Administrator credentials, and confirm where the network information, and click "Next".
1. Finally, just confirm if you want to enable Automatic Backups and click "Create".
1. Your new MySQL DB System will be ready to use after a few minutes. You can perform the following Step 3 in parallel while waiting.
1. The state Creating will change to Active, indicating that your DB System is ready to use. When the DB System is Active, click on the left "Endpoints" resources and check the Address to connect to the DB System.
Step 3 - Configure the client Virtual Machine to connect to MySQL
You will need a client machine to connect to your brand new MySQL database. If you still don't have a Linux VM in the same VCN mentioned in the pre-requisites, you can create one right now. To launch a Linux Compute instance, you go to the Console, menu Compute, Instances, and click "Create Instance". Ensure you choose the same VCN from the pre-requisites, and it is in a Public Subnet with a public IP address assigned
the Private Subnet to accept traffic on MySQL port(s). In the Console, got
to Networking, Virtual Cloud Networks,
name>, Security Lists, Security List for Private Subnet, and
add an Ingress Rule with Source CIDR 0.0.0.0/0 to Destination Port
3306. (Optional) Add another Ingress
Rule to port 33060 if you want to use MySQL Document Store.
1. Connect to the Compute instance using SSH. For example, using the Terminal:
2. You will need a MySQL client tool to connect to your new MySQL DB System from your client machine. For example, to install MySQL Shell just run:
3. sudo su root
6. rpm -Uhv mysql80-community-release-el7-3.noarch.rpm
7. yum update
8. yum install mysql
9. yum install mysql-shell
Step 4 - Connect to MySQL
In case you wanted to connect with Putty
