Cannot start server instance MySQL
Posted on 2008-10-26
I am havibg trouble installing MySQL Windows essentials 5 on WinXP SP2. When I get to the end of the instance configurarion wizzard it gives me "The service could not be started. Error:0". If I try to start the service manually from the services.msc it gives me "Could not start the MySQL service on local computer. Error 1067. The [rocess terminated unexpectedly".
I tried uninstalling MySQL, deleting folders, registry entries, deleting the service using "sc delete", but always get the same error.
I tried installing the gui tools and if I try to start Mysql through there I get the following in the log:
" Trying to start the server ...
Server could not be started.
Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not available
C:\mysql\bin\mysqld-nt: Shutdown complete "
