    install MySql

    Ive just installed mysql and Im following Build your own Database Driven Website using PHP & MySQL - Part 1: Installation.

    Once installed, MySQL is ready to roll (barring a couple of configuration tasks that we'll look at shortly), except for one minor issue that only affects you if you're running Windows NT/2000/XP. If you use any of those operating systems, find a file called my-example.cnf in the directory to which you just installed MySQL. Copy it to the root of your C: drive and rename it to my.cnf.

    The thing is I have no such file "my-example.cnf"

    Im confused ?

    I think you do not need it. On my Windows installs I do not have a "my.cnf" file. However, I do have a "my.ini" file in the %windir% directory.

    According to this page: http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Option_files.html MySQL will read configuration settings from either file.
