How to work MySQL Install on XP Pro from XAMPP and with no admin rights - move my.ini?
Posted on 2008-06-09
Hi all - trying to get mediawiki running on xp pro, non-admin account, using xampp 1.6.6a.
install seemed to go fine to c:\xampp\apache etc, and apache & php seem to be working great, but for mysql, only see mysqld.exe in processes, and can't net start or reach mysql. oh and because i'm not admin on this box, no my.ini installed in c:\windows.
Is there a way to set up mysql to run without admin rights? worst case that's fine if it only runs while i'm logged in. Been trying to read on creating my.ini, but always seems to locate in windows or progfiles dir, and can't write to either of those.
thanks for any direction!
