man o' man am I having a hard time with this. Does anyone have a "idiots instructions" place I can go to learn how to install my sql on my windows xp machine. One place I went says to find a file called my-example.cnf and rename it to my-cnf.cnf and put it in the root of c:. Problem is that file is nowhere to be found in my my sql directory.

Anyone. Bueller?..... Bueller? ......Bueller?

i dont think you have to use this one.

did you already run the installer you downloaded from mysql.com? as far as i remember you just install it like any other app.

thats for windows 95/98/me machines. For xp/2000 you should need that file. Im basing this off of a tutorial I'm reading here: http://www.webmasterbase.com/article/525/8 . Any clues?

Another question, how do you know it works after you install it. I know with apache, you type in "localhost" and php you call up phpinfo.php. Is there a way to know that your installation for mysql had been successful?

i can only say, i have XP and just did the same installer. no config file, nothing!

test: just run the mysql.exe from your mysql/bin directory and you can do old-school sql from the command line.
OR:
run the winmysqladmin.exe from the same location and play around with it.

yeah, I kinda stumbled into the mysqladmin.exe I have the server running. Do you know if I have to connect it to odbc? I'm kinda new to databases.
