Installing RDBMSs Software

In the days of yore, you would start the installation by popping a disk into your computer. With the price of bandwidth falling, you can now download the software off the Internet. Still, be prepared for a sizeable download (to the tune of 100+ megabytes).

Over the years, the installation procedures have improved dramatically, and, assuming that you go with most of the default options, the installation should be a snap. At the same time, there are a few things you need to know. The full version of the Appendix, available for download at www.wrox.com, describes the setup of RDBMS servers on a Windows 7 machine. Even if your environment is different, this might help you to select options as you proceed with the installation. For the full text of this Appendix as well as step-by-step PowerPoint/Open Office Impress slides describing the installation process, please visit www.wrox.com or www.agilitator.com.
