How to copy and install manually Mysql database on Windows?
Posted on 2016-08-16
I need the following scenario:
-I install MySql on a computer with the parameters I want (on Windows)
-I create mysql users
-I create a database with tables and fill with data
When I finished the steps above I need to gather the minimum files of MySql which will run smoothly - without installing - on another computer.
So I will copy the respective directory with the mysql files on the target computer and use :
mysqld --install mysql
and NET START mysql so as to install and start it.
I intend to make my own Install application to do this.
-What are the exact minimum files I need to gather for this?
-What should I be aware of?
