Create a MySQL database

Analyze needs a database to save its data to. So for now we create a void database (database with no schema). Analyze will install the schema as it runs for the first time. 

To create a void schema, follow the next procedure: 

  • Open the MySQL Command Line Client

  • Enter the password and you will enter the MySQL console client. 
  • Create the database opdion-analyze, you can use any other name, remember to change that in the configuration files
create database `opdion-analyze`;
  • If all went well, this is what you will see as a result. 

  • end this application by entering quit and execute the command by pressing the enter key.
