MySQL Sandbox 3.0.29
This tool helps you install a MySQL server in isolation
Unpack the necessary MySQL binaries somewhere under your home directory, and give it a convenient name (e.g. /opt/mysql/5.1.10, or $HOME/binaries/5.1.10 )
Unpack the distribution package in one empty directory and run the install script. For example:
./install.pl -f sandbox.conf --basedir=$HOME/binaries/5.1.10
You can create the data directory in two ways:
- using mysql_install_db script. In this case, the sandbox will run an additional script to install username and password in the database.

To see the available options, run ./install.pl --help

Start the server
Stop the server
use a client with the sandbox server:
