Creating database for ZFlow in MySQL
The next step is to create a database for ZFlow in MySQL. We are assuming that you have admin privileges to create the database in ZFlow, create a user has appropriate privileges to manage the ZFlow database
Create zflow database. In the example below we will use ‘zflow’ as the name of the data
mysql> create database zflow;
Create a user for the zflow database. Pick an appropriate user (instead of zflowusr) and a strong password (not ‘password’). Please remember the user and password details since we will use those values for configuration properties.
mysql> CREATE USER 'zflowusr'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON zflow.* TO 'zflowusr'@'localhost';
It is likely that tomcat is running.
The first step is to download ZFlow
