Help picking out database!

Posted 01 August 2013 - 11:14 AM

Hey all,

I want to dabble in using databases and I've chosen to use MySQL.

The thing is, which item do I download from their site?

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ -> Has so many options of downloads and I'm a bit swamped.

Do I download the MySQL Installer? The Community Server? The MySQL Cluster?

Any help at all and an explanation of what each one is would be so helpful.


Thanks in advance!

.. so where are you planning on installing it? What platform?

Primarily you would want to do

MySQL Community Server -> for linux
MySQL Installer (Windows) -> windows

Probably windows so I'll go with the Installer. Thanks! :)

Can you explain the difference between Community Server and MySQL Cluster?

Thanks so much

https://en.wikipedia...i/MySQL_Cluster

It's optimized for a different set of tasks.
