I have installed Xampp, but that is for my php stuff. But now i would like to install my sql server seperatly for my java program.

Is there any problem with that?

@ Onanar :
I am  unable to open your docx file, b/c i am using word 2000. Any how have you completely uninstalled Mysql and rebooted the system.
If yes, please check MYSQL-Service, in Win-xp, if its still showing, please remove it and try to reinstall.

For knowledge base you refer the below link :

I tried in many ways, but I could not finish the installation.. some times I am getting "windows service couuld not be started" and some times "unable to connect user root throguh localhost with (Password="yes")". Now I have decided to uninstall again.

can you please tell me what are the steps i need to do while installing.
here are my steps
1-> down load my sql community server from the below link
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/
2-> down load the software Windows MSI installer for mysql server.
3-> Run the exe file in my system
these are the steps I have done so far..
I am getting the error only after giving the password for my root.
any ideas.?

what error its showing ? The defaul root password is blank ( i mean null), During installation its again asking current password ? After uninstallation and refresh installation it should not ask for current password, it should only ask for new password and confirmation.

Can you tell me win xp version/edition and service pack ? or try to install it on another m/c with os win'xp prof. service pack >=2

it's 1->windows..
If you have already Mysql lower ver. installed on this system, then you will have to uninstall it, so its better to install it on a fresh PC.

I have installed MySql server in another pc. But now I am not able to connect to that server.
The error is like this

"could not connect to specified instance
my sql error number 2003
can not connect to sql server on '192.168.2.100'(10061)"

But when i check the ping, it is pinging.

I have used mysql query browser and administrator to connect to this one

Have you downloaded the latest version of mysql query browser /administrator from mysql site ?
If yes, pl, check the following :

userId, i.e. root (is default)
password i.e. blank (is default)
port i.e. 3306 (is default)

Pl.refer the below link and read the author's comment as under :

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Mysql/Q_21368770.html

I fixed the problem. From the connection screen I pressed CTRL and pressed 'Skip'. Then from Administrator I stopped the MySQL service and started the service whithin MySQL Administrator. Then I open the Administrator again it worked. I didn't know it was that easy.

Try to do as advised above .

@onanar : Your uninstallation procedure is right, but pl. check win service there should not be mysql service/instance running after uninstall.

Any how have you tried the method menttioned in below link :

Method is :

I fixed the problem. From the connection screen I pressed CTRL and pressed 'Skip'. Then from Administrator I stopped the MySQL service and started the service whithin MySQL Administrator. Then I open the Administrator again it worked. I didn't know it was that easy.
