http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/how-to-install-bukkit-newb-friendly.245/ take a look at this : )
you need to have a mysql server and database connector .jar in main folder
That won't help me. I am looking for information about MySQL, not the server setup itself.
Is there any documentation on this? I don't get why bukkit needs to be so much more difficult to use.
bukkit neither has nor requires mysql support.. does not REQUIRE mysql
apparently you are trying to use a plugin which does.. you need to check with the plugin author
or google mysql setup
this post is invalid.. nothing to see here.. move along - mughi
i misread your request and then borked my response.. sorry for the misinformation
it definitely does not REQUIRE mysql support
plugins can use mysql if they want though
i just don't think it uses it by itself for anything

also, searching for mysql on this site brings up several plugins.. perhaps the threads/authors/source code for those plugins would help
EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
In my opinion (personal opinion, may not be the opinion of other Bukkit staff) that MySQL is overkill most of the time. Are you really sure you need it, or just using it because some mods support it?
How is it a death blow? You could just have your web gui read the flat files.
Also, as mughi noted, some plugins offer MySQL or SQLite support. There really isn't anything in Bukkit that requires MySQL support. None of the flat files from the default server are more than a couple dozen lines. It might be added in, just like hMod had, but I do not know if they are working on it or not.
