I have read a lot of tutorials, but I am still having problems.
What I tried:
I downloaded mysql-5.5.9-winx64. All that I read says that I can run Setup.exe, but there is no such file in the download. The other option I know there is, is including \mysql-5.5.9-winx64\bin in the
PATH variable and then trying to execute the
mysql command. When I do that, the error I get is:
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
I then downloaded mysql-5.5.9-winx64.msi, which is easier to install, but once I followed the instructions and it was installed, I got the same error executing the
mysql command. How can I use MySQL?
EDIT: I've now removed everything I installed, and I want to start from scratch.
