    Red face MySql

    I have windows XP and have been trying to load Mysql from a CD so I can set up apache to run PHP. I have the book "PHP fast & easy web development by Julie C. Meloni". The situation I am presented with is that I have it installed to the point of starting mysql. The instructions say type cd c:\mysql\bin and that is accepted but the next command at the prompt is type in mysql-standalone and hit enter. The response I get is this ie: mysqld -- standalone is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file. I run it the command again and get the same response. Does anyone know how to reconcile this so that mysql will run on XP? I've followed the book up to this point, but can't seem to go further. email here Thanks for the help.

    Hmm... that book shows you a weird way of running MySQL. This one is a lot easier. Go to Start > Run and use the code below:

    Code:
    C:\MySQL\bin\mysql-nt --install
    That will install MySQL for you as a system service.
