Install MySQLIf you decide to use CST as part of your production activities, you will need to a technical person to download and install MySQL Community Server, version 5.0 or higher. A picture of the download page is shown below:

Adjusting files to accommodate MySQL passwordsMySQL can optionally be configured so that the database administrator needs a password. Let's assume that the username for the administrator is DBA and the password is 'lem0n'. If you are required to enter a password to access the MySQL database, you must edit the text for the
*.batfiles which appear in the release directory. You must add the following flags to the end of the text as in these examples:

Remember to change
System administrators should make sure that users have 'execute' permission to use
*.bat files but not have either 'read' or 'write' permission.
