[K12OSN] MySQL installation

I see nobody has responded yet, and I am no expert, but here is what I
think I know.

In my experience MySQL has its own set of users independent of the OS.
Each user is assigned by Database administrators manually and the
permissions for each user are individually assigned to each database,
table, etc.  In my opinion I wouldn't think that you could give a
separate instance of MySQL to each individual user with full control
over it and have it reside in their user folder just because of how it
is structured and handles permissions.  I may of course be way out of
line with my answer.  Good luck.

Subject: [K12OSN] MySQL installation

Dear Friends,

1. As a root user I have installed 'MySQL-server' and 'unixODBC' from
K12LTSP-4 package.

2. I would like to allow all the users of the net to use MySQL and store
their own databases in their folders, the same way that OpenOffice.org
does with Writer, Calc, ...

Can someboby help me ?

Thanks a lot !
