    Unanswered: Cost money?

    I have a book that says running MySQL is free for all operating systems EXCEPT Microsoft's. It says MySQL costs $200 for a license to run on any MS OS.

    The book could be out of date, I suppose. (The book is called PHP essentials).

    Update: Oops sorry. Looks like you already have it running.

    I bet you'd like an application I use called MySQL Front. It works wonderfully and is probably the best GUI app I've found for easily administering mySQL.

    The only down side I can think of with it is that if you are connecting to a remote server the link isn't encrypted. For that I use a linux box to setup a SSH tunnel that does port forwarding over the SSH connection to my remote database servers. That way everything is secure.
