Lesson #1: Installations

with 4 comments

This tutorial shows you how to install databases on various operating systems. It is organized by the database product. You can unfold content about the database and see the related articles. Within each database product, there’s a section for installations, configurations, and troubleshooting techniques. As concepts evolve and technology changes, some of these may direct you to my active blog site.

The databases are organized alphabetically, lest I offend somebody. My bias is toward Oracle, which was my second relational database after IBM DB2. While instructions exist for installing these, the on campus and online courses use a preconfigured VMware image that already had Oracle and MySQL installed. I also have preconfigured Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 instances, which you need to install for Microsoft SQL Server. You only need to add license numbers when you start the Windows instances.

  1. The “Microsoft SQL Server” seems to not drop down like the arrow makes it appear like it should.

  2. I think this site could benefit from arrows that “turn pages” from the current topic or page to the next one.

  3. Nathan, Yes, there are a number of things that could be done if I rewrote the basic template. Time to do so, is prohibited at the moment.
