On this page you can download samples, code that we used in the book, errata, and anything else we think of to post.

We tried to use standard, widely available tools and content for the book. Here’s a list of things you may find useful for following along with what we did in the book:

  • Sakila and World sample databases. Search for the text “sakila” on this page; you will find a link to download the databases, plus a guide explaining how they work and what they contain.
  • Percona Toolkit and other software — the tools no MySQL database administrator should be without!
