If your running on a Win9x version , I would recommend running MySQL in
the background , to do this go to C:\MySQL\bin and click mysqld_opt.exe.

Note: If this is a Windows NT type of Operating system , you should be able
to get away with just using the MySQL green light tray icon program. LateR!

Hi all,

I've been working on installing MySQL for days now. Here's what I've got:

Sony VAIO PII 400MHz w/Win98 (old isn't always a bad thing)
256Mb RAM
Abyss running on dedicated 10Gb drive
PHP

The first thing I did was try v 4 of MySQL...nothing...couldn't even get the traffic light icon in the systray

Removed that version and downloaded and installed v 5 of MySQL...VOILA!!! Grenn light!

NOW, I can't even get a username/password dialog in order to administer the program so I can't even get past the 1st step to using MySQL.

Anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks

Hi,
i got green light for a few seconds and then it lights red again.
First thought was that Windows Firewall has blocked MySQL port - so i allowed this port to be opened - still changes to red.

In WinMySQLadmin1.4->Environment->MyODBC is shown error "Not Found". Question is - what is not found? There is nothing else written except "Not Found". I searched for *.err file and got nothing.
My.ini file seems to be correct.

(I use WinXP, Abyss Web Server, MySQL 4.1, MyODBC.)
What should I do!?

I'm running my server as a windows service. I don't even have a taskbar icon. How do I know if MySQL is running? I assume it's not, since I can't seem to run mysql.exe succesfully...

Gripp, welcome to the forums.
Open your Task Manager to see if mysqld-nt.exe is running.

i think it has something to do with the my.ini it is looking at the my.ini file not in where i put it IN WINDOWS but in the abyss web server folder

I think this is winmysqladmin you are looking for, it should be the one that looks like traffic lights.

The new packages of MySQL (the one which size is around 14MB) does not contain MySQLAdmin. The new installer of MySQL takes care of setting the new root password.

Hi
Followed your steps, but I think they are out of date and I don't know enough to know what to do!

winmyssladmin does not exist in mysql5.0- it was apparently removed a couple of versions ago.

So I have Abyss web server at C:\Abyss Web Server
The mysql server at C:\Abyss Web Server\database\mysql

a my.ini file that has the contents...
[mysqld]
basedir=C:\Abyss Web Server\database\mysql
datadir=C:\Abyss Web Server\database\mysqldata

at C:\WINDOWS\my.ini

But note that Mysql has its own my.ini in its directory which has abunch of stuff in it!


I have created a quick test script in php

<?php
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');
if (!$link) {
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}
echo 'Connected successfully';
?>

And it returns

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\Abyss Web Server\htdocs\mysqltest.php on line 4

I have PHP 5.0 installed
There are no traffic lights - Abyss is a windows service as is mysql
The Abyss logo thingie is in teh system tray - is the traffic light part of that?

Help!

Note to self and anyone else struggling!

The aprellium boys have preconfigured PHP 5.0 to work with abyss and mysql - see end of thread http://www.aprelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6470

Just need to try it and then fiddle with the mysql now it doesn't have winmysqladmin!

the config program of MySQL can install a service for you, this program is run automatically after setup has finished.

I'm having an odd problem with my mySQL install. I've gone through the tutorial a couple times now and I have the same problem each time:

I install it, it works great. I even install phpmyadmin over it and all works well. Any time I restart mySQL, I can't connect though. On the Enviornment tab in winmysqladmin.exe, under MyODBC, it says "Not Found Driver 3.51 Not Found"

With no connection info. I did password protect my mySQL db via the phpmyadmin tutorial. Did I have to change anything in the winmysqladmin.exe configuration?

Any ideas? Thanks.

I can't get any lights...

This does this work with 5.0 version, dosn't it?

Which type should I download- I downloaded "Without installer (unzip in C:\)" ("mysql-noinstall-5.0.19-win32.zip")

I can't find "winmysqladmin.exe" I can only find "mysqladmin.exe" and when I open this nothing happens, exept a flash of a command prompt like the other guys.

Do I have to open it via command prompt?

HELP! :(

jamesthemagician, winmysqladmin.exe is not included in MySQL anymore.
They've done away with the "traffic lights".

You should download the version with the installer and do a default installation.

Damnit, all of you forget about the green light.
On the assumption you're using windows NT or above, run mysqld-nt.exe, and check if it's still running in task manager after it forks.

If it is, congradulations it works, otherwise it sucks to be you.

Or you could ignore nasty comments and go to www.abyssunderground.co.uk/tutorials-mysql4-0-24.php and www.abyssunderground.co.uk/tutorials-mysql4-1.php and get step by step instructions on installing and running MySQL.

Wow, no replies in over 2 years? That's surprising, considering the info is uselessly outdated... Since the original author seems to be long gone, would someone who knows how to do this please start a new thread with the current recipe? And could that thread be the one that's linked to from the Abyss FAQ? I'd love to know how to set up Abyss with MySQL, and I'm sure I'm not the only one...

If you did a forum search you'd find many new topics on the subject, and if you looked at the post before yours you'd see links to tutorials that work just fine.

A forum search provides nothing (that I could find) in the way of instruction on how to install the current version of MySQL with Abyss, nor do your links, which are broken.

For a tutorial linked to from the FAQ, you'd expect the information to be of some use, but it's simply not - at least not with MySQL v5.

I wouldn't think it too much trouble for someone in the know to write up a fresh tutorial for the forum.

See this image?



Its in every post I make and the link works fine. Click it and find out. It has up to date tutorials on just about everything you will need to run Abyss, MySQL, PHP, Perl, Mail Server, phpMyAdmin, etc etc etc. I hope it is of some use to you.

Do the MySQL v4 tutorials on your site apply to v5?
Why not have the FAQ links direct there?

The tutorial for v4.1 is pretty much the same for v5. They don't change a whole lot and the installation is practically spelt out to you anyway with step by step instructions.

So it's really just a matter of going with the default installation and using the configuration wizard?

These instructions really had me going down the wrong path.

The link to this thread really needs to be removed from the FAQ!

I hope someone with the ability to update it is reading this...

Correct. Remember some people like to use old versions for their stability and compatibility, myself included.

How can I prevent multiple back-ups getting created to every text or picture file? I have XP operative and Office Software. Back-ups of a picture file I create keep getting generated as I try to delete them. Please advise how to stop this unnecessary multiplication.

What is the problem?


The error message is pretty much self explanatory: there is obviously a problem with your MySQL setup. We strongly suggest that you use the latest MySQL installer that takes care of the driver setup and its associated programs. The latest MySQL series is now 5.x and 3.51 is obsolete and no more supported (even by its authors.)

PostPosted: Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:10 pm    Post subject: MySQL for Windows bug Reply with quote

As you are installing MySQL for Windows, you'd want to fix the configuration bug on windows. By default, MySQL cripples all table names to lower case. This is the worst thing to do as a "work-around" to case sensitivity on Linux. The correct way to handle table names is case INsensitive, but keep the case as it is. To make MySQL get the tables right, add the following line to my.ini:

Code:
[mysqld]
lower_case_table_names=2


Do so before you create any table, so directly after runing the installer.
