Norbert Tretkowski: MySQL plugins in Debian

Aprile 5, 2008Nat0 Comments

MySQL 5.1 and up supports a plugin interface that allows the loading and unloading of server components at runtime, without restarting the server. Today I started working on a mysql-storage-engines package for MySQL 5.1 in Debian, which includes the PrimeBase XT and Sphinx storage engines. I currently don’t plan to create separate binary packages (like mysql-engine-pbxt and mysql-engine-sphinx) for every single plugin.

Suggestions for additional plugins which should be added are welcome.
