Help With Install Needed

Posted 02 November 2002 - 12:58 PM

i cant get a server installed.. mysql install keeps failing because there is remnants of an old install somewhere.. i uninstalled it, removed any links from the registry, disabled the old service.. it still wont work and i still get an error referencing the old mysql directory, which doesnt exist anymore.

i just need help with this problem.. can't understand it. XP is running on the box I'm having the trouble with, btw.

ryandury02: it works.
ryandury02: i didnt have to add no mysql to it.
ryandury02: and this isnt foxserv. I did a self install of apache, php, then phpmyadmin

...


I guess I'm special, and mine randomly has mysql? Thats all I did.

mySQL does come with some distro's of PHP, however, if you download it directly from PHP.net, it does not actually come with the mySQL compilation, it comes with the ability to talk to mySQL... but it's not included in the installation.

So the bottom line is, install FoxServe :)
