howto Mysql-shareware on win 98 SE localhost

howto Mysql-shareware on win 98 SE localhost

howto Mysql-shareware on win 98 SE localhost


Am I trying the impossible here or ?

I try to get Mysql-shareware running on win 98 SE with the
Active State perl (new) and Xitami webserver.
I know nothing about unix, linux.

I try to mimic my webservers environment so I installed:
mysql in c:/usr/local/musql
as perl is in c:/usr/local/bin

Getting tired of all the typing and for ease of use
(the server needs its basedir given at the ccommandline)
I rename d mysql-shareware in mysqld this didn't work so.
I installed it all new with all the default settings and
cleaned the registry.

so that:

basedir is c:/mysql/
datadir is c:/xitami/webpages/softweb/cgi-bin/data/
and also added c:\mysql\bin to my path in autoexec.bat

but then:

C:/>cd \mysql\bin

Ctrl-Alt-Del yes musqld-shareware is running

C:/>mysqlshow nothing only the helpscreen rolls out and that
happens with all programms in the mysql\bin dir.
The windows MuSqlManager can't delete or connect
to anything but the topics Test and Mysql can expand
into their keys.

C:/>mysqlshow -u root mysql
C:/>mysqladmin version status proc
C:/>mysql test
C:/>mysqladmin ping

mysqladmin -u root shutdown doesnt work
server can only be killed with Ctrl-Alt-Del

Question can mysql(shareware) run on win98?
and if so
how should it be installed (maybe it is enough when
you send me the cnf's of a working win98 installation?)

RE: howto Mysql-shareware on win 98 SE localhost

check the clients version. i use winclients-3.23.14

you'll have to check hosts.sam if there are any changes.

mysql seems to check for localhost by default.

if that doesnt work, you'll have to see if TCP/IP is installed, try 'ping' and check.

if that works then you can try 'mysql -h -u root'

and leave the password field blank.

i'm using win98 SE with mysql-shareware-3.22.34-win and winclients-3.23.14 without any problems.

i do not monitor this board, so mail me at hrishi@mm.strategicnewspapers.com if you're still stuck.
