MySQL is a free database and can be easily used in your .Net Applications. This quick-start goes through the typical process that involves installation, up and running your “Hello MySQL” application.
If you are not interested in the MySQL installation, skip this and go directly to the below topics:
- Download MySQL server here or if you already had an oracle account, go directly here.
- Accept the license, and select the product/platform to download, click “Go”
- Download the installer
- Unzip and run the installer, follow the instructions.
- Select the options, in my case, I choose “Full”
