On the next pages you’ll find the installation procedures. The first installation is the installation of the MySQL database. After installing the database you need to access the database for creating tables, users and privileges. How to install and configure MySQL-Front will be explained in the second chapter. The next step is to install and configure the MySQL ODBC-connection, this step is necessary to access your MySQL database via BO Data Services. At last I will show you the installation procedure to install BO Data Services XI 3.2. When all of these steps are complete, you can easily build up your own data warehouse.

Good luck with your installation!
