MySQL 5.6 Install Steps
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My install instructions on the web site were old, somebody wanted me to publish another set of screen capture for the MySQL 5.6 install and configuration. This is it for Windows 7 using the downloadable MSI file.

Installation Steps

The installation from MySQL’s perspective is actually the installation and configuration of MySQL. For your convenience and reference, I’ve already installed the pre-requisites for MySQL. They’re:

  • Visual Studio Tools for Office 20120 Runtime
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
  • Microsoft Excel 2007 or greater
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 32-bit runtime
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile

Below are the installation steps after you download the current release .msi file.

Sure-fire MySQL Install on Windows
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Due to firewalls, virus scans, corporate security restrictions, or just plain bad luck; there are times when MySQL just won’t install on a specific Windows server.  Here’s a sure-fire install method.   Relax, I won’t have you run the msi installer again.

The first step is to remove directories from your previous install attempts.  Uninstall from the control panel.  Manually, rename or delete “C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1″.  Next, delete (or rename) the data directory.  Warning! If you have previously entered data into MySQL, deleting the data directory will delete data.  The directory is located at “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\data”.   You may need to unhide the data directory.
