Not an MySQL expert, but I believe those instructions are contaminated by the Windows OS.

On unix, such modifications are made through direct modification of configuration files, prompt commands, etc. You may want to lookup the MySQL documentation to find the exact correspondents of each action listed there.

Saw that I got negative votes. MySQLInstanceConfig is not available on linux, AFAIK, and mysqlsetup was only used for a new instance last time I check. Anyway.

Hi Lily,

Mysql install is not part of Confluence's download. For linux systems, you'll need to download this and install separately. There are many guides out there on the internet for your specific linux distro, but you should follow mysql's instructions and incorporate any linux flavor specifics for your OS.

Confluence does not ship with mysql so you'll not find any installation wizard until you either download an installer, or install using a package manager on linux.

Hope this helps!
