I am trying to install mysql 5.1.58-win32.msi i've follow all instructions everything going well until I reached to Mysql Server Instant Configuration part I know you have to be patience and wait a little for mysql to sort itself out but it takes for ever like 30 minutes or more is this normal or is there something I am doing wrong? Last night I had to cancel the installation as it went on for ever and now it's doing the same thing.
If anyone else had the same experience and solved it please let me know.
use xampp . It will install apache&php&mysql for you.
apache friends - xampp for windows
Thanks for your reply appreciate it, I prefer to install them individually I shall keep trying and see what happens or I might check if the host already have php, mysql available.
If you are on a shared host package, it is unlikely they will allow you to install mysql on your own. If they don't offer mysql, find a new host.
Thanks for your reply I think it is a better idea as I just cannot install mysql I've heard mentioned that host can get rid of client's own php, mysql and use their own.
Zero installation. Just unzip it and click on the .exe file to run everything.
You can copy the folder and stick it on a CD or usb drive and give to a client. Can even run from a usb drive (CD too, but not writeable, obviously)
And it's free.
wow thank you so much I've never heard of USBwebser you learn something new everyday.
