no information_schema database ?
« on: September 29, 2010, 04:52:19 PM »
Hello,

I just noticed that my MySQL on our os x server, running the qube supervisor, has no information_schema database.  Can I make one, and if so will it work with my current qube databases?  How would I make one?

thks,

R

Which version of Qube and MySQL are you running?

Which user are you logging into mysql as?  Most users, and the anonymous one, don't have SELECT privileges on the information_schema db.

Try: mysql -u root

You're running a 4.1.22-standard version of MySQL Server; the INFORMATION_SCHEMA tables weren't added to MySQL until 5.0

Try "SELECT VERSION()"; it will return 4.0.22, the version of the server you're running, not the mysql client version.

If you upgrade your Qube supervisor to 6.0, you'll also get MySQL 5.0.45 installed as part of the supervisor installation.  Just be sure to stop the running Qube 5 supervisor and the 4.0.22 MySQL server before you install Qube 6.0
