I upgraded to MySQL 4 from the version that came with Php 423. In the "read me" file it told me to replace existing files (sans data directory) and then start MySQL with this option
c:\phpdev\mysql\bin\mysqld-opt\ --skip-grant-tables

When I do I get:
cant start server: listen () on TCP/IP port
No Error
030925 23:04:34 Error listen() on TCP/IP
failed with error 10050

then it aborts and says it got signal 11.

In Control Panel my MS-DTC is defaulted to TCP/IP

any help will be greatly appreciated!
