garystafford/sakila_mysql_db — version 0.3.4 Mar 4th 2015


Puppet module for downloading and installing MySQL Sakila sample database. The sakila_mysql_db Puppet module downloads and installs the MySQL Sakila example database onto an Ubuntu-based target node running MySQL. Note, if MySQL does not exist on target node, the sakila_mysql_db class will install MySQL using puppetlabs-mysql module's mysql::server class (currently version 5.5.x).
There are also two other classes, sakila_mysql_db::cleanup and sakila_mysql_db::uninstall, which can be used to drop the database and to remove all install files.


This module is currently tested on:

  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Ubuntu 14.04

It may work on other distros. You will need to test.
