Something i overlooked is the error file! This is very easy to miss since in WinMySQLAdmin, when you click the "Error" Tab the text field is blank! (A bug... :roll:) However it isn't! This should help you fix any red-light problems. It is located:

X:/Path/mysql/data/

(Replace "X:" with your driver letter and "Path" with the path to the mysql directory)

e.g. C:/Program Files/Abyss Web Server/mysql/data/

You can tell which file is the error file because it has the file extension .err

The error file should tell you what needs to be done. For example, I wasn't able to get a Green Light (Ever) but then I looked at error file and got this:
Quote:
031031 16:21:55 InnoDB: Started
031031 16:21:55 Fatal error: Can't open privilege tables: Table 'mysql.host' doesn't exist
031031 16:21:55 Aborting


I accidently deleted the database "mysql" which the program seems to need. Once I re-added it (from my zip file) it was Green Light all the way!

I hope this helps some people :D

Hint to every mySQL user: DON'T REMOVE THAT MYSQL FOLDER IN mysql/data or just don't remove the database mysql when you login at phpmyadmin.

The Guide worked, where it says TIP
MySQL is a fabulous server but requires plenty of command line
knowledge. Fortunately theirs a really nice GUI in php for it called
phpMyAdmin. Check out the following thread for a quick guide on
installing phpMyAdmin.
http://www.aprelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10 , is this nessecery to install?

Im getting these errors:

The server cannot start because of the following error(s):

* Cannot open/create the log file.
* Cannot open/create the CGI error file.

It seems that you changed the Server Root. So create an empty directory called log in this new server root and restart the server.

when i was trying to configure mysql i dont know what was wrong but i tried uninstalling mysql and then YOU MUST DO THIS:i went to the c:/windows directory and deleted my.ini file (this file might be hidden so u better just do a search of the windows folder. Then i downloaded mysql again and when the first window that asks u for a password and user comes up make sure to type in Admin(or any username) and a password. U MUST DO THE USER AND PASS WINDOW BEFORE MYSQL CAN CONFIGURE ITSELF!

You may want to try uninstalling MySQL and delete my.ini
and try installing it over again using http://os17fan.cjb.net

my.ini is in C:\Windows

This tutorial is so helpful, perhaps you would consider having it on the main site to compliment the ones on how to install php, perl etc.

This could be one of multiple problems:
1. You configured the shoutbox to access a database that doesn't exist,
2. The shoutbox is not configured with a user that has "write" priviledges,
or
3. This shoutbox doesn't work; get a new one.

I suggest troubleshooting the first two before you look on to another one.

I have ran into a problem before that had something to do with
Windows services using MySQL , all you need to do is make sure
mysql-nt.exe is loaded , it could be your services.

If you need any more help
meet me on MSN if you have it
and I will configure it for you , Free!

Yes there is. I think all you have to do is go into the folder where you installed MySQL, go into "data," and create a new folder.

Having a username and password is the same for all databases. It is a program-wide change. If you would like to set one without using phpMyAdmin, in your my.ini file, write:

Quote:
[WinMySQLAdmin]
Server=C:/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe
user=root
password=[yourpassword]

That is an example. Put your full path to the MySQL executable you use in the "Server" field, and put your desired password in the "password" field. Keep the user as root.

No need if you go to:
<Place MySQL installed>\lib\debug

you can copy the dll across to the dir (bin) and it should work.

read http://www.aprelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4566 for more info

Download a utility called "phpMyAdmin" (use the "Tutorials" section). If you don't already, you need to add PHP Support.

You need to first install PHP properly , to do that , you can either install
it using my PHP installation Tutorial at os17fan.cjb.net or you can use the
tutorial that Aprelium provided at aprelium.com/abyssws/php.html

I've searched this forum for answers but could not find any. If I've skipped over something, please just direct to where the answer is. I've installed Abyss Web Server, php, phpMyAdmin, phpBB, and mysql. I have the green light with mysql, phpMyAdmin works (I am able to add, edit, etc. datbases and tables), php is working. The problem? I get an "Access Denied" error using the following script:

<?
$connection = mysql_connect("localhost","blrellim","*********");
die("Couldn't connect.");
if($connection){
$msg = "success";
}
?>

******** = my password.

My my.ini file looks like this:

[mysqld]
basedir=C:/Program Files/Abyss Web Server/database/mysql
datadir=C:/Program Files/Abyss Web Server/database/mysql/data
[WinMySQLAdmin]
Server=C:/Program Files/Abyss Web Server/database/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe
QueryInterval=10
user=blrellim
password=*********

I have checked users in the mysql table wih phpMyAdmin and blrellim has all priveleges.

Can someone help me with why I'm getting an "Access Denied" error? The exact error produces:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user: 'blrellim@localhost' (Using password: YES) in C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\htdocs\PHPmadeEasy\db_connect.php on line 2

Any help would be great.

Hello, I am a novice to this and I just got this consistent problem. Everytime I try to get to phpMyAdmin, everything seems fine, but it keep giving me this error:

Security Alert! The PHP CGI cannot be accessed directly.
This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled. This means that a page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI variable is set, e.g. via an Apache Action directive.

could someone help!!!

wow stop spamming your site, why didnt you tell him to go here? http://www.aprelium.com/abyssws/php.html

You know theres a reason why Aprelium took time to make that page.

If I were admin I would ban people like you. (I so wish i was here.)

There is said it....most painless as possible.

dont be jealous, he has a nice site, I followed it, its well described, and entertaining to read, and easy to follow pictures, the aprelium help is basic and crude..

you should also know, he provides LIVE help. which can be very good. and be very personal, live.

I wouldn't say that the aprelium PHP installation guide isn't a good one , I refered that
person to my website because he didn't know about the user environment variable with the
REDIRECT_STATUS , I explain in detail how to set it up , I just didn't want that user to
get lost , the chances of him actually viewing Aprelium's guide already is very high.

Ok, I have WinMySQLadmin, but I still get red lights, and when I try to enable the service manually in the services list (I am using Windows XP Home) it says the service terminated unexpectedly.

My my.ini looks like:

Do you have a firewall ? I found that some Firewalls will make MySQL red when you don't allow access to MySQL.

Also delete your my.ini , its all wrong , follow the MySQL tutorial after that. Below...

It works, heres how I did it if anyone wants to try:

1: Delete your my.ini from your windows directory (either C:\WINNT or C:\WINDOWS)

2: Open winmyadmin, but when it asks you for a username and password, click cancel

3: in the my.ini editor in win admin enter the following code:

Code:
[mysqld]
# set basedir to your installation path
basedir=C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\database\
# set datadir to the location of your data directory
datadir=C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\database\data\


4: Close then re-open, and it should work.

(Thanks to TRUSTPunk for making me click cancel, and Mysql.com for the code snippet)

Here's the thing. I follow the instructions to the letter. (Well not to the actual letter, but you get it) I open file: mysqladmin.exe but when I do I get a command screen and stuff flys by on it and then it closes itself. I don't get a green light, or for that matter a light at all. Can somebody /please/ help me figure this out?

Use ctrl+alt+dlt and check your processes. If you see something with mysql in it then its running.
