Windows server: MySQL Administrator and XAMPP on Windows?
What where the errors then?
I had problems with MySql administrator and found out that it was McAfee virus scan
Many thanks to Anthony for his help. Here is the current problem:
When I start MySQL Administrator-connection user@localhost:3306 I get the following error message:
"Either the server service or the configuration file could not be found. Startup variables and service section are therefore disabled."
Note: MySQL Service shows that it is started when I go under computer management on a Win2003 server (standard edition).
Once I click OK, I get the the administrator panel and the server information is correct. However, the Service Control and Startup Variables are "grayed" out and not available.
Under Catalog I see the Database entries.
My first experience in MySQL administration was really XAMPP. All I needed was imporing and exporting MySQL database (it was sites' creating). Then the number of functions I needed increased and XAMPP couldn't satisfy all ny demands any more. And I found the great software for MySQL management - dbforge Studio for MySQL. It has ALL the functions you ever will need and intuitive and user friendly interface! Free trial available! Try it!
In Windows, that file is usually named my.ini.
The admin should use the Windows search box (accesible via the Start menu, or by pressing F3 at the Windows Explorer window --which can be opened with Win-E).
To access the service window, which lists all services installed, press Win-R (this opens the Run dialog box) and then enter: services.msc
The Xampp control panel is usually accessible at the System tray (where the Windows clock is --right, lower corner).
