I am trying to connect to MYSQL to build a table. I know I did it last semester but I don't remember exactly what I did. It seems like there is a file I have to go into to change a setting but that could be wrong. Here is the exception I'm getting:
Yes there is my.ini or my.cnf that you can go and make changes to. This file is in your windows or winnt folder. The mysql/winmysqladmin.exe will also let you modify it. Also confirm if you are using the right userID and password. I just spent the entire day today getting the initail set up for mysql working. Let me know if this still doesnt help. Karen

It just occured to me that I the last time I worked with MYSQL I needed to click on something (a file maybe) and it would give me an icon down by the clock with the other icons. Once I get that icon I should be ok but I don't remember what to click on to get it. Does this sound familiar?
Sounds like you need to start mysql as a service. Depending on your version, it does this automatically so you probaly have it there already, you'll just need to go to services and set it up as automatic or leave it in manual and actually start it.
