View Full Version : MySql, Can't get it to work on win 98

error 2003 : can't connect to server on localhost (10061)

I get that one all the time. Always because I forgot to type mysqld at the command line. i.e. the server needs to be running to connect to it...

I open up the MSDos window, but can't seem to navigate to C:\mysql\bin. The command line stays at C:\WINDOWS. Any ideas...
-Don't worry, perfection isn't for everyone.

Err.... cd \mysql\bin not work ?

Thanks, I was always typing C:\mysql\bin thinking it would work.

The best solution is just to add it to your path info in autoexec.bat (C:\mysql\bin;)[nbsp][nbsp]Then you can type mysqld from any prompt.[nbsp][nbsp]Of course the most efficient way is to run Apache and MySQL as services under NT.[nbsp][nbsp]Now I've switched to Winblows 98 SE I often forget myself to start the daemons :o)

NT/MySQL as a service might be nice - but I have had no problem with Win98/PHP/PERL/mySQL - you can see a step by step here: www.thedailyspread.com/tech/ (http://www.thedailyspread.com/tech/)
