Create MySQL Data Source
I create a new MySQL Data Source.
I also demonstrate how to install a MySQL database server in case you don't have one.
I install the MySQL database on my existing Grafana Server to make it easier to follow the lecture.
You can install MySQL on any server you like.

I also create an example database, and a specific user called
grafana@localhost, that will have SELECT only access to the database.

I then continue setting up the MySQL data source using the Grafana User Interface.
