Setting up MySQL


The configuration files in

  • code/ryzom/server
  • code/ryzom/tools/server/ryzom_ams/www/config.default.php
  • code/ryzom/tools/server/admin/config.php
  • code/ryzom/tools/server/www/login/config.php

expect your user to be named 'shard' with NO PASSWORD. If you decide to use a different name for your MySQL user, or assign it a password, you will need to go through the files and change these values from 'shard' and "" wherever they appear. (they appear in several .cfg files)

Since this (and a password) can lead to unexpected errors (eg. error '4000') it is best to make sure everything works correctly with the defaults first.

titleParse Error

If you are getting strange errors some config files may have Windows editor "control-M" endline characters, which appears as a blue ^M in vim. You can remove it with this vi command, noting that ^M is typed by pressing Ctrl+V followed by Ctrl+M:

Code Block
find /home/username/ryzom/code -name "*.cfg" -name "*.php" | xargs grep -l '^M'   # if there are none, Vim will gladly eat your shell if you xargs it vi <listed filename>   # Next issue this command to vi :%s/^M//g



Running MySQL Auto Install

Ryzom AMS now includes auto install scripts for the mysql database, all you have to do is load your DocumentRoot on port 80 that was setup above, for example


Image Removed

 The installer will by default setup permissions for the user "shard" if you want to use a different user you will need to run the below sql statements.

Code Block
titleCreate Database and Grant Privileges
GRANT ALL ON nel.* TO newuser@localhost; GRANT ALL ON nel_tool.* TO newuser@localhost; GRANT ALL ON ring_open.* TO newuser@localhost; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
