Error installing MySQL 5.6.16 from source on Debian

These are the steps I followed:


  1. Download
    mysql-5.6.16.tar.gz
    to
    /usr/local/src

  2. cd /usr/local/src

  3. tar -zxvf mysql-5.6.16.tar.gz

  4. cp /usr/local/src/mysql-5.6.16 /usr/local/mysql/

  5. cd /usr/local/mysql

  6. created group
    mysql
    with user
    mysql

  7. chown -R mysql .

  8. chgrp -R mysql .

  9. cmake .

  10. make

  11. make install



But I got an error running this command:


  1. scripts/mysql_install_db.sh --user=mysql --datadir=/usr/local/mysql/data




bash:
scripts/mysql_install_db.sh
: Permission denied


I am doing all these steps with
root
user.

Any suggestion to make it work. Please provide me the full steps to install MySQL 5.6.16 on Debian by compiling the
tar.gz
file.

Answer

Does scripts/mysql_install_db.sh have execute permission?
(check with ls -l scripts/mysql_install_db.sh)

If not, you can

  1. add execution permission to it by

    chmod a+x scripts/mysql_install_db.sh
    

or

  1. run it using sh scripts/mysql_install_db.sh ....
