Install MySQL for Foundry


This is only applicable when you install Volt MX Go to a development or test only environment.

The procedure guides you in installing MySQL for Foundry.

  1. Run the following commands to create a Foundry directory in the proper location, and make the Foundry directory the current directory:

    cd ..
    mkdir foundry
    cd foundry
  2. Run the following command to make sure that the chart information for the repositories is up-to-date.

    helm repo update

    See Volt MX Go and Helm chart version compatibility to know the latest Helm chart version.

  3. Run the following commands to install the Bitnami MySQL Helm chart to use for the Foundry database storage:

    helm repo add bitnami
    helm install mysql bitnami/mysql --version "9.6.0" --set image.tag="8.0.32-debian-11-r17",auth.rootPassword="Password123\!",auth.createDatabase=false,auth.username=dbclient,auth.password="Password123\!" -n mxgo


    The command is specifying a simple password (Password123!) for the root account. You may want to change this password. If you do, make note of it, as the correct password must be specified again when you install Foundry.

  4. Run the following command to verify when the database is in the ready state:

    kubectl get pods -o wide -w

    mysql-0 should show 1/1 in the READY column as shown in the following output example to indicate that the database is in the ready state.

    NAME                              READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
    domino-drapi-5c65d76c6c-rkfml     3/3     Running   0          11m
    mysql-0                           1/1     Running   0          45s
  5. Once the database is in the ready state, press Ctrl-c to stop the command.

Next step

Proceed to Install Foundry.
