How to configure MySQL server 4.1 on Windows



MySQL is the world's most popular open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). This article privodes step-by-step server configuration guide for MySQL 4.1 (release 4.1.18) on Windows as a development box.

What you need

  1. You should have installed MySQL 4.1 release 4.1.18 (other releases for version 4.1 should be fine). If not, see How to install MySQL 4.1 on Windows.

  2. Windows 2000 or XP (may work on Windows 9x but never tested).

Note that we assume you don't already have another instance of MySQL server installed on your computer. MySQL 4.0 and 4.1 can be installed on the same box. See How to install two different versions of MySQL on the same computer for more info.

  1. Start MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard.

    If you have selected the checkbox 'Configure the MySQL Server now' in the last step when installing MySQL 4.1, the configuration wizard should start automatically when you click Finish button. Alternatively, you can launch the wizard from Start menu. Start -> Programs -> MySQL -> MySQL Server 4.1 -> MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard.

    MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard.

  2. Select configuration type. Because you do not already have another MySQL server installed, choose Standard Configuration.

    MySQL Server Standard Configuration.

  3. Select Install as Windows Service. This is the recommended way to run the MySQL server on Windows. If you want to operate MySQL server from command line, check the second checkbox - Include Bin Directory in Windows PATH.

    Install MySQL Server as a Windows Service.

  4. Set a new password to root account. When MySQL was installed, the password for root account was blank. Now it is time to set a new password to it. Don't select the Create An Anonymous Account checkbox. This can lead to an insecure system.

    Set a new password to MySQL Server root account.

  5. Now everything is ready to execute. Click Execute button to run it.

    MySQL Server Configuration is ready to go.

  6. MySQL server configuration completed successfully.

    MySQL Server Instance Configuration completed.

Note: You can always change the configurations by going through the wizard again. To launch the wizard:

Start -> Programs -> MySQL -> MySQL Server 4.1 -> MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard.
