    MySQL Trouble

    Hello,

    I'm trying to setup Mysql on my pc, i already installed it and executed the command:

    c:\mysql\bin>mysqld

    but i get the following error message:

    "Can't initialize InnoDB as 'innodb_data_file_path' is not set"

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Try to re-install it, then go to MS-DOS, access the "bin" folder and type mysqld, if you are using NT or Windows 2000, start it as a service...

    When installing with innoDB support, you need to specify configuration options within my.cnf,
    namely, 'innodb_data_file_path' in order to run it..

    The following will give you a run down on what needs to be done:

    Hey Toly,

    Try running mysqld-opt instead of mysqld this is the default program during the set-up on windows.

    Same Toly from DR?
