Thanks for both replies!

I think the stopping and refresh were the problems. I am just
testing/learning now, so no one else is using the DB.

I was not able to repeat the problem this morning. So it was something I
was doing.

The script will be handy.

If I may ask one more question - I saw in the NT docs for MySQL somewhere
when I first started playing with MySQL that "the only way to shut down the
server at this time was to use the Admin utilities and do a 'shutdown

Did I read this correctly? I can't find it again.

Is it still true for the latest version. I just purchased a license so I
will be using the lasest very soon (shareware currently). I will have MySQL
configured as a service on NT.

Weekly I do an auto-reboot of the NT server at 3AM Monday morning. The
reboot uses the NT shutdown-restart (not forcibly) facilities so I would
imagine that all services are stopped by NT. Does stopping the MySQL NT
service shutdown MySQL server nicely or should I use a script to shutdown
MySQL before the reboot.

Thanks much again,
