The first hour of a 2-hour workshop on what to do with a MySQL instance you’ve inherited. Very detailed, goes into real examples using shell prompts.
Unfortunately, the settings were incorrect on the video recorder, so only the 1st hour was captured. Presented at the Boston MySQL User Group on February 13th, 2006.
Special thanks to Tom C. for securing the MIT space.
