System error 1067
Date: June 25, 2006 12:56AM
Ok, let me start out by saying I've been doing all the research I can to try and solve this problem. I've looked at many forums, including this one to find the answer.
I'm running Windows XP, I downloaded MySQL 5.0, and I'm now trying to get it started. I have a book I'm going by called "Beginning PHP5, Apache, MySQL Web Development" (by Elizabeth Naramore, Jason Gemer, Yann le Scouarnec, Jeremy Stolz, and Michael K. Glass).
It tells me to use MySQL 4.0.20 but I went ahead and went with MySQL 5.0 because its the latest version. Heres what I'm getting..
I go to my command prompt, get to the proper directory, and do a
NET START MySQL
and get the following.
C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>NET START MySQL
The MySQL service is starting.
The MySQL service could not be started.
A system error has occured.
System error 1067 has occured.
The process terminated unexpectedly.
-- I understand this is a common problem, most solutions talk something about a C:\my.cnf file that I'm suppose to mess with. I don't have one of those..
-- I got my-huge.ini my-large.ini, my-medium.ini, and my-small.ini which I guess is typical?
Through a very tiny amount of setting up PHP I know that these .ini files control the configuration of MySQL, and can be edited to perform different duties, but I couldn't tell you more than that.
So as you can see, I'm JUST starting out with this stuff, and know absolutely nothing about it, but I'm looking for all the knowledge I can get my hands on.
-- Any help on the System Error 1067 (and my specific problem(s)) would be greatly appreciated.
-- Wanted to provide a little more information.
-My MySQL Version is 5.0.22
-Aftert Installation, I didn't do the MySQL Instance Configuration that it prompts you to do when you click "Finish".
- If it matters, I downloaded the "Windows (x86) 5.0.22 36.7M" from the download page
