to request the mysql database creation.
- A sponsored departmental
account on Fraser (to hold the PHP code). (Webdav will not work for
PHP). That is done by getting a form from the front office and the dept
paying a small nominal yearly fee.
- A MySQL id and database (to hold the data for the application) I am
contacted to set up the id and database. The service is free to
departments. I just require a sponsor, namely someone that works in the
particular department and will take responsibility for what is done
Access to the MySQL server on Fraser is granted by request.
It must be for an SFU-related project and sponsored by an SFU
I can be contacted at the e-mail address or phone number below by a
faculty member or administrator in your department willing to sponsor
Conditions of use:
- You will be given a MySQL account and password and access to your own
MySQL database. We can give a little bit of help to help you get
started and we provide minimal DBA support, but you would be mainly on
your own with the database service. It would be up to you to maintain a
backup of mySQL data. In the event of a system failure, we cannot
guarantee that the data can be restored. It is up to you to do periodic
data dumps in order to be able to recreate and rebuild your database
should the unforeseen occur. [2007- Data is now backed up but that does
not mean you should not back up your data!
- There is a limited amount of disk space available for MySQL databases
and other stuff on the Fraser machine, the institutional timesharing
system. You will be sharing this limited space with others. Thus you
will need to be judicious in your use of disk space and CPU cyles
pertaining to the mySQL server.
If these conditions match your needs and you want to go ahead, I will
be asking for the following information:
- A short sentence describing usage (I sometimes put mySQL users in
touch with each other if it looks like they have common needs).
- MySQL id desired
- MySQL database name desired
- Contact info (in case something goes wrong in the system, who I can
to discuss things with).
