Dear friend, please help me. Iam working on php project (matchmaking site). I have downloaded mysql essensial 5.0.51. When i was installing mysql 5.0.51, i got following error - Error 1901: Error attempting to read from the source installation database: c:\windows\installer\527ec6.msi [retry] [cancel] What is solution of this problem ? Iam using windows xp professional version 2002 (service pack 2).Please post your reply.Iam waiting for your answer.


As per the shoutbox, google XAMPP, a single click installer.


Or, as an alternate option.

Go to http://www.mysql.com/ and download *.zip files.
Place it on your hard drive and extract by a zip app such as winrar or winzip or windows build-in zip feature from windows xp.

After that, please make a copy of my*.ini and place it to your windows xp system folder. That will be windows if you have not change it's name when you install it. A my-small.ini should enough on most situation if you use it for development only.

Finally, change folder to {MYSQL-DIR}\bin\ and type in mysqld-nt and press enter.
or run it as a windows service by execute this command:

mysqld-nt --install

and start it by use
net start mysql

Following are all steps:

Let's say mysql will be installed on c:\mysql\ folder, then hereafter, when I use {MYSQL-DIR}, it will represent this directory.

extract files metioned above, then,

C:> cd {MYSQL-DIR}\bin
