NAME

Hailo::Storage::MySQL - A storage backend for Hailo using DBD::mysql

SYNOPSIS

As a module:

    my $hailo = Hailo->new(
        storage_class => 'mysql',
        storage_args  => {
            database  => 'hailo',
            host      => 'localhost',
            port      => '3306',
            username  => 'hailo',
            password  => 'hailo'
        },
    );
    $hailo->train("hailo.trn");

From the command line:

    hailo --train hailo.trn \
        --storage      mysql \
        --storage-args database=hailo \
        --storage-args host=localhost \
        --storage-args port=3306 \
        --storage-args username=hailo \
        --storage-args password=hailo

Almost all of these options can be omitted, see DBD::mysql's documentation for the default values.

See Hailo's documentation for other non-MySQL specific options.

DESCRIPTION

This backend maintains information in a MySQL database.

ATTRIBUTES

storage_args

This is a hash reference which can have the following keys:

'database', the name of the database to use (required).

'host', the host to connect to (required).

'port', the port to connect to (required).

'username', the username to use.

'password', the password to use.

CAVEATS

MySQL sucks.

MySQL setup

Before creating a database for Hailo you need to ensure that the collation_connection, collation_database and collation_server for the new database will be equivalent, you can do this by adding this to your [mysqld] section in my.cnf:

    skip-character-set-client-handshake
    collation_server=utf8_unicode_ci
    character_set_server=utf8

Now when you create the database you should get something like this:

    mysql> show variables like 'coll%';
    +----------------------+-----------------+
    | Variable_name        | Value           |
    +----------------------+-----------------+
    | collation_connection | utf8_unicode_ci |
    | collation_database   | utf8_unicode_ci |
    | collation_server     | utf8_unicode_ci |
    +----------------------+-----------------+

If you instead get this:

    +----------------------+-------------------+
    | Variable_name        | Value             |
    +----------------------+-------------------+
    | collation_connection | utf8_unicode_ci   |
    | collation_database   | latin1_swedish_ci |
    | collation_server     | utf8_unicode_ci   |
    +----------------------+-------------------+

Then Hailo will eventually die when you train it on an error similar to this:

    DBD::mysql::st execute failed: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT)
    and (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' at [...]

After taking care of that create a MySQL database for Hailo using something like these commands:

    mysql -u root -p
    CREATE DATABASE hailo;
    GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO hailo@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'hailo';
    GRANT ALL ON hailo.* TO hailo@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'hailo';
    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
