Hi Ian Thanks!
Your advice worked.I have another problem.I stopped the service from the
services shortcut in the Administrative tools.then according to to the
reference manual to start the server for the first time the command to run
is given as C:\>"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqld"
But it didn't work, the following was the displayed message
'"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqld"' is not recognized as
nternal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
*But when I used "mysqld-nt" The following is the out put*
C:\>"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqld-nt" --console
081004 16:56:01 InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43655
081004 16:56:01 [Warning] Neither --relay-log nor --relay-log-index were
o replication may break when this MySQL server acts as a slave and has his

2 What is the difference between installing MySQL as a server and a service,
Is it only that when installed as a service MySQL server starts when Windows
starts and when Windows stops it stops?
3 After starting the server in above mentioned way How can I use MySQL
server Do I have to open another console window and do what?
