    Setting up MySQL on win9x

    I must give creidt to jethro (i hope i spelled that right he helped me find the right file to download after weeks of me looking. thanks again jethro.

    ========================
    Downloading and installing mySQL
    ========================
    1. Go download http://www.mysql.com/downloads/downl....23.51-win.zip
    just get a mirror near you.
    2. Extract that file and install to c:/mysql
    3. Open the command propt.
    4. Change to c:/mysql/bin
    5. Type mysqld --standalone *note* You should see that you are now in mysql. you should see "mysql>" instead of the c:/mysql/bin. If all is well then you have successfully ran the mysql server on a win9x box.

    ==============
    Creating Databases
    ==============
    1. Get to the working Dir (ex. c:/mysql/bin)
    2. Type mysqladmin create database01 *note you may change database01 to a different name.*
    3. Thats it, you have just made a database

    lol, yep. I can see your going to be a tough contender for that Number One Tutorial thing... I think Rewandythal, the current champ, has written like 20 or something.
    I'd better get cracking

    lol, the cool thing with long tutorials, is people complement you on it, even though they haven't read it. So even if it's utter shite, you still get greenies

    Hey, I installed mysql a long time ago, and I didn't remember it this way for windows boxes, so I tried it. It didn't work. You might want to revise your tutorial. And your link, for me, didn't work either.

    The link is badly formatted or something, because it has been shortened down to contain periods.
