    Docs for Mysql support in version 6?

    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.
