    unable to start MySQL

    Hi,

    I have just installed, PHP, Apache, on my WinXP Pro machine. I then went to install MySQL, which appeared to go well...

    I went into MySQL folder and opened up winmysqladmin, and clicked on Start...the response I got was unable to start try again in 30 seconds...

    Don;t know if this has anything to do with it, but in the books and help pages I have got, they all mention a log on page, to enter username and password, I have not seen this.

    Can anyone help?

    Have you installed MySQL in another directory other than the default of C:\MySQL? If you have you'll have to look at altering the my.ini file, changing the path to that of where you have actually installed MySQL.
