MySQL cookbook

The MySQL cookbook exposes the mysql_service and mysql_client resources. These resources are utilized by the mysql::client and mysql::server recipes, or can be consumed in other recipes by depending on the MySQL cookbook.

This cookbook does its best to follow platform native idioms at all times. This means things like logs, pid files, sockets, and service managers work "as expected" by an administrator familiar with a given platform.

Scope

This cookbook is concerned with the "MySQL Community Server", particularly those shipped with F/OSS Unix and Linux distributions. It does not address forks and value-added repackaged MySQL distributions like Drizzle, MariaDB, or Percona.

This cookbook does not try to encompass every single configuration option available for MySQL. Instead, it provides a "just enough" to get a MySQL server running, then allows the user to specify additional custom configuration.

Requirements

  • Chef 11 or higher
  • Ruby 1.9 (preferably from the Chef full-stack installer)

Resources / Providers

mysql_service

The mysql_service resource configures the basic plumbing needed to run a simple mysql_service with a minimal configuration.

Example

mysql_service 'default' do
  version '5.1'
  port '3307'
  data_dir '/data'
  template_source 'custom.erb'
  action :create
end

The version parameter will allow the user to select from the versions available for the platform, where applicable. When omitted, it will install the default MySQL version for the target platform. Available version numbers are 5.0, 5.1, 5.5, and 5.6, depending on platform. See PLATFORMS.md for details.

The port parameter determines the listen port for the mysqld service. When omitted, it will default to '3306'.

The data_dir parameter determines where the actual data files are kept on the machine. This is useful when mounting external storage. When omitted, it will default to the platform's native location.

The template_source parameter allows the user to override the default minimal template used by the mysql_service resource. When omitted, it will select one shipped with the cookbook based on the MySQL version.

The mysql_service resource supports :create, :restart, and :reload actions.

mysql_client

The mysql_client resource installs or removes the MySQL client binaries and development libraries

Recipes

mysql::server

This recipe calls a mysql_service resource, passing parameters from node attributes.

mysql::client

This recipe calls a mysql_client resource, with action :create

Usage

The mysql::server recipe and mysql_service resources are designed to provide a minimal configuration. The default my.cnf dropped off has an !includedir directive. Site-specific configuration should be placed in the platform's native location.

run_list

Include 'recipe[mysql::server]' or 'recipe[mysql::client]' in your run_list.

Wrapper cookbook

node.set['mysql']['server_root_password'] = 'yolo'
node.set['mysql']['port'] = '3308'
node.set['mysql']['data_dir'] = '/data'

include_recipe 'mysql::server'

template '/etc/mysql/conf.d/mysite.cnf' do
  owner 'mysql'
  owner 'mysql'      
  source 'mysite.cnf.erb'
  notifies :restart, 'mysql_service[default]'
end

Used directly in a recipe

template '/etc/mysql/conf.d/mysite.cnf' do
  owner 'mysql'
  owner 'mysql'      
  source 'mysite.cnf.erb'
  notifies :restart, 'mysql_service[default]'
end

mysql_service 'default' do
  version '5.5'
  port '3307'
  data_dir '/data'
  template_source 'custom.erb'
  action :create
end
