MySQL problems... again
Greetings and Salutations.
I am once again, with the help of another book, attempting to install Apache/PHP/MySQL on my box.
I am installing MySQL first, and I have run into a problem: when I try to start the service, I get an error that says the system couldn't find the path specified. I checked the path, and it's pointing to something that doesn't even exist. So I have to change it - but I don't know how. So how exactly would I go about changing the path to the MySQL executable? It's currently “C:/FoxServ/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe” but it should be “C:/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe”
it is in the winnt folder (hopefully)
Mine is c:\winnt\my.ini
I'm on XP Home, so it's C:\WINDOWS\my.ini
There was an old my.ini file there, which I replaced because the book says to create one if you move the myql folder from where it's defaultly placed. I figured I'd create the file to make sure everything was pointing to the right place, but unless I have to restart to have it take affect, that didn't help.
non mysql forum
umm. i don't know if this would help but if ur interested i found a great forum that does not require mysql, myupb.com/ourscripts_upb.php
that way u only need to get apachie and php working in conjunction.
btw: i have also had problems with foxserve and miniportal, i suggest installing apachie 1.3 from their website and using this tutorial to install php (the tutorial actually takes you through the entire process of apache through php)
hope this helps

The reason I am installing PHP/Apache/MySQL is so I can learn these things without having to pay 40 bucks a year. So I don't require a forum at all, whether it uses a DB or not.
I am installing Apache, but I did install Abyss a while back, and I still have it, but I'm going to stick to Apache.
I've seen that tutorial before, but unfortunately it doesn't help me, since it only deals with PHP and Apache, and the only trouble I've ever had is with MySQL.
I really hate to bump this, but it's imperative I get this problem resolved.
I posted my question at the dBForums several days ago, and received a reply that solved my problem. Thanks to all who helped me here.

The old path must've been one from one of my previous installations, so it was suggested to me to uninstall the service with
and then reinstall it with
I don't know how that worked, but it solved my problem.
Sadly, I am now having a PHP problem.
Refresh, I'd suggest to either get a PHP/MySQL that deals with the installation, or check out some of these links for some info. Good luck!
