    What does it mean when I run "mysqld" ?

    I'm format my computer and Install Win98 SE again when I already install mysql and run mysqld it has this message (mysql 3.23.43)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Cannot initialize InnoDB as 'innodb_data_file_path' is not set
    If you do not want to use transactional InnoDB tables, add a l
    skip-innodb
    to the [mysqld] section of init parameters in your my.cnf
    or my.ini. If you want to use InnoDB tables, add for example,
    innodb_data_file_path = /mysql/data/ibdata1:20M
    More information on setting the parameters you find in the
    manual.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    re:

    If you've formatted your computer, you have to reinstall all of your software...you cannot just copy from your backup or other drives because necessary entries have to be in the win98 registry. So, if you didn't reinstall your mySql, you have to do it again. If you did, you didn't turn all of the options as you did before or whoever did it for you. You should read the manual to set up the option as it's telling you and recompile and rebuild the mySql application. Or, call the person who did it before for you to do it again. Before you do any rebuilding, make sure that it's not just a simple update to the configuration file.

    By the way, mysqld is a deamon process that runs your service for the mySql connections.

    Good luck!

    Find the file my.cnf and add the following line in the [mysqld] section:

    skip-innodb

    If you don't want to disable the use of innodbs then check out the manual
