How to enable GNUCash in Debian for MySQL

By default, if you install using aptitude like this:

sudo apt-get install gnucash

...then MySQL will not be enabled automatically. For that you must also do:

sudo apt-get install libdbd-mysql

It of course requires the existance of mysql-server:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.5

Create the database instance

This can be done using the instructions from here:

mysql> create database gnucash;
mysql> grant all on gnucash.* to gnucash@localhost identified by 'PASSWORD' with grant option;
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> exit
