The MythTV Source contains a mc.sql file in mythtv/database.  This simple SQL script can be used to create a default mythconverg database using the following method:
 +
 +
<pre>
 +
mysql -u root -p < mc.sql
 +
</pre>
 +
 +
You will be prompted for the MySQL root user password (note that MySQL user is different from a Linux style user.  Consult your distro documentation for more information).  Enter it, and the default Myth database will be created with a Mysql user named "mythtv" and a password of "mythtv".

This section of the user manual is the MythTV backend and frontend reference manual


Backend

Initial MySQL Setup

The MythTV Source contains a mc.sql file in mythtv/database. This simple SQL script can be used to create a default mythconverg database using the following method:

mysql -u root -p < mc.sql

You will be prompted for the MySQL root user password (note that MySQL user is different from a Linux style user. Consult your distro documentation for more information). Enter it, and the default Myth database will be created with a Mysql user named "mythtv" and a password of "mythtv".
