Elizabeth, with all due respect, this is not a very helpful response.

I, too, have gone through much the same experience that Jack has. It appears that the mySQL folks have changed some things around. The info in the book no longer appears valid in respect to my.cnf, which appears to have been changed to my.ini.

What would be helpful would be to post revised information here.

It is not especially helpful to say, "Well, you could have used the xampp installer" when someone has already invested considerable time in an alternate path.

glbryan, in all fairness to Elizabeth, it was me who suggested xampp as an alternative.

The complaint had been how much time was being wasted in attempting to solve installation problems. Open Source solutions in general were being attacked as if not ready for primetime. I suggested that the true strength of open source was multiple sources for solutions as MySQL is very much center stage in primetime.

Elizabeth's suggestion was not xampp (although she agreed as good alternate solution) Her suggestion was go to MySQL's web site to try and resolve your confusion. If you find her answers unclear why not try one of the countless HowTo Sites. No one book will ever have all your answers. Can not hold an author liable for revision changes in software created by the multitudes. Any teacher can at best show you how to approach a problem.

I found http://www.php-mysql-tutorial.com/index.php to be easy to follow

Personally I found it easy to setup with MySQL 4.0 on my Winbox
