Blowing my mind how to setup multiple mysql servers on one windows box.. - 06-06-2006 , 10:34 AM
Having some major issues... Racking my brain. Also it is worthy to
note as of 3 weeks ago i have 0 experience with MySQL.
So anyway.. HOW DO YOU DO IT?? hehe - I can get multiple services
installed and started, but everytime i try to make any edits to them
and stop/restart they wont restart. here is my exact .ini file.
# options for mysql service 1
port = 3306
datadir= C:/Program Files/MysqlInstance1/Bin/data
innodb_data_home_dir= C:/Program Files/MysqlInstance1/Bin/data
# options for mysql service 2
port = 3308
datadir= C:/Program Files/MysqlInstance2/Bin/data
*This is the following command i type in to get the service installed.
C:\Documents and Settings\admin>"C:\program files\mysql\mysql server
qld-nt" --install testdb1(or2) --defaults-file="C:\my.ini"
One thing that bothers me is this. When i open up the Instance
Manager, and look at both installed serviecs. Under the Configuration
file it says "Section Name: mysqld". I want it to use "testdb1". It
uses mysqld for both services. I can go into Startup variables and
change them but it doesnt seem to affect anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I may have forgotten how I did this as I did it a few years ago, but I
believe you have to use different my.ini files, at least I believe it
is the way I did it back then
