Installing Msql-Mysql-modules

You must install DBI before you can install the Msql-Mysql-modules package. The package I will use is version 1.2216.

bash# tar xfz Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2216.tar.gz

That created a directory called Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2216/. Now to compile and install this one:

bash# cd Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2216
bash# perl Makefile.PL

This will give you a list of options. Select 1 MySQL only. Then press Enter to select the default for the rest of the options. Let's continue:

bash# make
bash# make install

Now DBI should be up and working. Now comes the fun part.
