    smartest call, especially if you are not especially experienced in installing MySQL and the like is to consider using a pre packaged installer such as XAMPP
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    as error messages and warnings are also written tto eh windows event log, check there aswell

    so I'd suggest you search for the .err file on your file system.
    you should be able to do that using file manager or the black arts of DOS
    run an instance of CMD
    type dir \*.err /s/w/p
    ..assuming your installation is on a windows box

    if the server is bolluxed then the MySQL command line wont work either

    it may bve you need to open the firewall port for MySQL 3306

    as said before if you are unfamiliar with installing MySQL then consider using XAMPP. Yes XAMPP co0mes with plenty of baggage, its not just MySQL buit its a pretty complete and fairly painless way of installing MySQL. having said that the last time I downloaded MySQL on a windoiws machine the binary from MySQL worked fine.

    I'd suggest you back out your current installation and start again with settings as speicified by MYSQL.. they will be plenty sufficient for development purposes, and leave the configuration of the server on the live system to them what knows
