    I know this must sound very, err, n00b-ish, but I can't get mySQL to stay as a process after I activate mysqld-nt.exe. I'm using an old version of PHP and mySQL (actually PHP triad) and AFAIK I should run apache.exe and mysqld-nt.exe, as I'm using windows XP. I've tried all sorts of things... but so far, after I run the exe, the window just disappears - as it usually does on my PC - but then mySQL itself just vanishes, and nothing can contact it. Am I missing anything? This is a fresh installation to a laptop, and my PC isn't working right....

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try running it on the command-line and see if it gives you any errors. Also try hunting for error logs. On Windows, I think these are usually in the main MySQL folder... But then I haven't run MySQL on Windows for about two or three years now :-P

    Actually I've run every single application in apache/mysql/bin. All of em. And nothing usually happens, except a beep or two. Where are the error logs?

    Or should I just redownload a newer set?

    Try to see if the service is stopped.

    Start -> Run (write "services.msc") -> enter

    Scroll down until you find MySql, and see if it says "stopped" under status.
    If so, restart it.

    Ah, thanks everyone, I got it working already! I just meddled with the options and I discovered how to get it to work - turning on Windows 95 compatibility mode. That was sooooo obvious.

    Thanks again for your support!

    A very, very old one I suspect. At least in phpinfo, it says it's at 3.23.39.

    I just couldn't bother downloading all 3 pieces together and decided to use an old version of them.

    Dear God, MySQL 3.x is ancient to the point of complete lunacy and uselessness. Install MySQL 4, bare minimum, or preferably 5 (well preferably PostgreSQL instead of the turd that is MySQL).

    On that mention, can I just download a new version and plaster them into apache and get it to work instantly?
