Install MySQL Server 4.1 on Ubuntu

Installing MySQL 4.1 Server on Ubuntu is a quick and easy process. It almost feels like it should be more difficult.

Open a terminal window, and use the following command:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server-4.1

If you are running PHP you will also need to install the php module for mysql 4:

sudo apt-get install php4-mysql

To create a new database, use the mysqladmin command:

mysqladmin create <databasename>

See, really easy!

    hello i was hoping u could give me step by step instructions on how to Create my own World of warcraft server for Burning Crusade. because i recently joined a private server and i got to 70 sure but i couldnt be a GM (game master) so i couldnt do really anything because there are only 6 people on the server and they are all of the same faction.

    Hi!

    How can I install MySQL 4.1 on Ubuntu Server 8.04? When this is not possible, what is the newest Ubuntu Server Version that supports MySQL 4.1?

    Thanks and Greets
