Hello I've been struggling for days to get mysql going on my computer and would love to get to back to java(which I can do once this database is going).
I installed it on win nt server as per instructions on the internet and on their website and it will not connect when I try to get it going stating "error 2005: Unknown MySQL Server Host 'localhost' <11001>"
If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be soo grateful.

I knew your feelings. Just double click on 'winmysqladmin.exe' under <mysql_install_dir>\bin directory.
Good luck.
