This time I chose to use the installer and during the initial config process I receive this error:
So I then copied the my-template.ini over to the bin directory and renamed it to my-template.cnf which allowed it to generate the my.ini file but on the next step the service does not start giving the error:
The MySQL service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the path specified.
Here is the path to the executable:
"E:\mysqlcluster\bin\bin\mysqld" --defaults-file="E:\mysqlcluster\bin\my.ini" MySQL that was autogenerated from the install script.
Notice the extra \bin in the path.
I have tried the zip file and now the install file with no luck. Not a very good first impression of mysql cluster. I hope I can overcome these hurdles so I can continue implementing and testing.
