    Unanswered: Install Mysql

    I am trying to install Mysql. When I tried to run server I clicked at file winmysqladmin.exe, it asked for username and password. What should I do.

    If I recall - the default logon is "root" without a password. Then you can change it... and I highly recommend changing it - and adding users with specific rights.

    if you are using phpMyAdmin for the first time, there are some settings in config.inc.php (in the phpMyAdmin directory) which you should adjust e.g. "phpMyAdmin url", and "Authentication method".

    mysql-4.0.21-win.zip sounds fine.

    mysql-4.1.5-gamma is no doubt a newer version of MySQL but as it has gamma in the file name I would guess that it is not a production stable release.... gamma and beta refer to software versions that are still being tested.
