Configuring NXLog Manager for Standalone Mode

To operate in standalone mode, NXLog Manager requires MySQL or MariaDB v5.5.

Installing MySQL Server Debian or Ubuntu

Install the mysql-server package:

# apt-get install mysql-server
MariaDB has replaced MySQL in more recent versions such as Debian (Stretch).

Start the mysql-server service:

# service mysqld start
systemctl has replaced service in more recent versions such as Debian (Stretch).

Now you may proceed with the Database Initialization step.

Installing MySQL Server on CentOS 6 or RHEL 6

Install the mysql-server package:

# yum install mysql-server

Start the mysql-server service:

# service mysqld start

Now you may proceed with the Database Initialization step.

Installing MariaDB Server CentOS 7 or RHEL 7

MariaDB has replaced MySQL as the default package on CentOS7 and RHEL 7. MariaDB is a fork of MySQL and should work seamlessly in place of MySQL. Install the mariadb-server package:

# yum install mariadb-server

Start the mysql-server service:

# systemctl start mariadb

Now you may proceed with the Database Initialization step.
