For brand new DLXS middleware installations, create a new MySQL database following these MySQL database configuration instructions in the main documentation.
After the database is created, the next step is to install the sample database data contained in $DLXSROOT/misc/db/db-dump-v6.0-release.sql.
Let dlxs_v6 be the database name you chose for this installation. Note that this is the database name you supplied at the prompt when you ran the Installer. Use the mysql command line client to load the dump file like this:
% mysql -u dlxsadm -p dlxs_v6 < $DLXSROOT/misc/db/db-dump-v6.0-release.sql
If you already have a DLXS database set up for an earlier release, make a copy of it and then upgrade the copy to support the newly installed DLXS release.
Let's say your current database is named dlxs_v5 and the new database will be named dlxs_v6. To make a copy of your current MySQL database and upgrade it:
mysqldump -u dlxsadm -p dlxs_v5 > dlxs_v5_dump.sql
mysql -u dlxsadm -p dlxs_v6 < dlxs_v5_dump.sql
$DLXSROOT/bin/db/upgrade_5_6where $DLXSROOT is the root of the new DLXS release 13 installation. This means upgrade_5_6 will act on the database name you supplied when you installed release 13.
If your existing database version is more than one version behind 6, run the $DLXSROOT/bin/db/upgrade_* sequentially on the copied database, starting with the version of the copied database.
For example if you copied dlxs_v3 into dlxs_v6 then run, in order: $DLXSROOT/bin/db/upgrade_3_4, $DLXSROOT/bin/db/upgrade_4_5 and finally $DLXSROOT/bin/db/upgrade_5_6. Again, $DLXSROOT would be the root of the new DLXS release 13 installation.
