Installing MySQL

(Last updated on: June 17, 2015)

The intended audience for this post is technicians. Installing and maintaining a database server is not for the faint of heart. Tuning the database server to get it up to speed is something of a black art.

The first step is to check and see if you have the server installed already. Go to a command prompt (DOS prompt) and type “mysql” if MySQL is installed, you will get a message: “Error 1045 Access denied.”

If MySQL is not installed, you will get a message, “mysql is not recognized as an internal or external command.” Remember, you need to check all the computers. Frequently, the server is installed on a different computer.

For installing MySQL, the first step is to get the installation file.

Here are the instructions.



Make sure you check the box labeled “Add firewall exception for this port.”
