The Accidental MySQL DBA

If you are an "accidental MySQL DBA" this post is for you.  I assume you know almost nothing about MySQL, or its derivatives...such as MariaDB and Percona.  This post will give you just enough to get up-to-speed quickly and will give you enough knowledge to perform information google searches to find more detailed information.  I assume you have a working knowledge of MS SQLServer and I'll compare and contrast the two.
