Installing the Sakila Demo Database from Scripts

It happens. Sometimes we mess up our demo database. Sometimes the installation option is missed and it doesn’t get installed. You don’t need to re-install all of MySQL to get the demo database. They can be installed using scripts.

You can download the Sakila database scripts here:

Once downloaded, you can follow the steps on MySQL’s guide to run them: MySQL :: Sakila Sample Database :: 4 Installation

To execute the file (be sure you are in the same directory as the scripts) you can run:

source the-script-name.sql
