I have being using MySQL for a while now, but never really understood the internal workings, I wanted a site that covers the finer details of MySQL, this will help me to fix difficult problems and tune the database, this site will cover MySQL versions 5.1, 5.5 and the new Oracle 5.6 version.
The site has been comprised of reading the following books and real world experience, if you are new to MySQL I highly recommend that you should purchase these books as they contain far more information than this web site contains and of course the Oracle web site contains all the documentation you will ever need.
Please feel free to email me any constructive criticism you have with the site as any additional MySQL knowledge or mistakes that I have made would be most welcomed.

|MySQL Administrator's Bible - Sheeri Cabral, Keith Murphy
||This book covers all you need to know about MySQL, however it does cover the older version 5.1, but it's still an excellent book
|Oracle 11g and MySQL 5.6 Developer Handbook - Michael Mclaughlin
||This is one of the first MySQL 5.6 books, it compares Oracle with MySQL, this is a good book if you wish to understand MySQL but have a background in Oracle.
