Hi guys
Have just decided to start to learn MySQL after many years in MS Access.
Have got hold of MySQL 4.0.21 (Windows, as soon as I'm profiicient I'll move
to Linux) - not the most recent version but it came with the book I bought
(PHP, MySQL and Apache Allin One by Julie C. Meloni pubs Sams) as I wanted a
reference to point me in the right direction. After installing all three
apps and starting WinMySQLAdmin 1.4 I tried to start the MySQL Service from
the Traffic Lights I get the following message:

Fails to start the service. PLease wait 30 seconds to try again.

No matter how many times I try the MySQL service never starts. Please help

Thanks

Search for mysql.err file in your MySQL/data folder. It might give some
clues what went wrong.

Thanks - I've uninstalled MySQL, searched and removed every entry in the
registry, rebooted and re-installed MySQL and it works. Thanks for the
help.
