How hard can this be, there must be some docs somewhere for setting up
slimserver with Mysql? All I could see anywhere are the default settings
in slimserver.conf using dbi:SQLite. So whats needed to point this to
Mysql? Why are there no database settings options in the GUI?

Johnny - there is no documentation because MySQL is not officially supported.

We're a small company, and only have the resources to dedicate to one
database backend right now. We do allow you the flexibility of using a
different backend however.

Your best bet is to ask on the developers list.

The quick answer is:

dbusername=YourDBUser
dbpassword=YourDBPass
dbsource=dbi:mysql:database=YourDBName

in the config file. Read the man page for DBD::mysql

As always - patches welcome, either for documentation, or UI configuration.

Given that, are you interested in MySQL-related bugs in bugzilla, or
would they just be clutter?

(I don't have any bugs to report yet, I'm just curious. If your answer
is yes, I'm probably going to try configuring mine with MySQL, so I can
play around with some data-mining.)

Yes, I'm interested - but I'm afraid they won't get priority, unless it's
exposing a bug that is not MySQL specific.
