I am only starting to pick up sql but having trouble getting started.
I am using Windows 2000 and i downloaded and installed mysql-5.0.0a-alpha-win. I leave the installation directory as c:\.
I go to the scripts\ directory and try and run mysql_install_db script but instead i get the error:
'mysql_install_db' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
I try and start the server anyway using mysqld and it starts but when i do mysqlshow there is no mysql database.
Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?
