Download and Import world_x Database

To prepare the world_x database sample, follow these steps:

  1. Download

  2. Extract the installation archive to a temporary location such as /tmp/. Unpacking the archive results in a single file named world_x.sql.

  3. Import the world_x.sql file to your database. You can either:

    • Start MySQL Shell in SQL mode and import the file by issuing:

      mysqlsh -u root --sql --file /tmp/world_x-db/world_x.sql
      Enter password: ****
    • Set MySQL Shell to SQL mode while it is running and source the schema file while MySQL Shell is running by issuing:

      \source /tmp/world_x-db/world_x.sql
      Switching to SQL mode... Commands end with ;
      \source /tmp/world_x-db/world_x.sql

    Replace /tmp/ with the path to the world_x.sql file on your system. Enter your password when prompted. A non-root account can be used as long as the account has privileges to create new databases.
