Oddest thing. I unzipped mysql-noinstall-5.1.31-win32.zip to C:\mysql
Installed service. Service is running. No errors on .err log file.
But when I try to connect I get an error:
Code:
C:\mysql\bin>mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
Any idea what might be wrong ?
I added in my.ini the following :
basedir=C:\mysql
datadir=C:\mysql\data
