I've asked this question once before with no response (and have asked on other
lists), I'll give it one more try before giving in to semi-Gates domination (my
last holdout is the Apache server I'm running):
Upon installing MySQL as a service, why will it not start for all users? Only
my admin account allows the MySQL service to start. I cannot start the service
manually or automatically from any regular ("power user") account.
MySQL was installed as a service using
with no problems. I've come across a vague reference in the manual for a
manual installation of MySQL as a service if problems occur, but have no idea
if that is the course of action to take since I don't really know why there is
a problem. Putting MySQL in the startup items makes no difference. HELP!
