Local Blast2GO Database Installation
(This is now obsolete. The use of the Blast2GO Command Line is recommended for this task.)
This page describes how to create a local installation of the B2G MySQL database and is intended for users with knowledge in MySQL databases and general server administration tasks. If you are not able to follow the steps given here, we recommend you to ask for some help from your system administrator.
After this installation you will end up with a working DB to run Blast2GO with a DB name “b2gdb”, user “blast2go” and a default password “blast4it” being able to run Blast2GO nearly independent from our server. This does NOT include the graph layout generation, GO-Slim reduction and other web-services which are hosted at the Blast2GO or third party server sides which you will still need to access remotely.
B2G users should keep in mind that the B2G-DB schema can be subject of changes as a consequence of the continuous efforts for improving the performance and quality of this annotation framework. We will promptly inform users about any major change, especially concerning the database, through the B2G mail list (http://groups.google.com/group/blast2go) and website. In general, all datasets needed to create a local instance of the Blast2GO database are freely available at different public locations. Since the used resources are not maintained by us, third-party changes can affect these instructions. We will try to keep this as up to date as possible and are happy for receiving any feedback and bug-reports. Thank you.
