This is a running set of independend and cooperating web and desktop applications or components, such as Apache or other webservers -- running from a Subversion workspace on an USB drive on any Windows station.
Here the steps you need to master, until you see and process data in a grid on the front end.

|Tutorial on Codeplanet (2006-April-08'11:01) Verbindung zum MySQL-Server mit C#. Tells the basics on how to access and use the MySQL.Data.dll connector.||Tutorial|
This is a developers log file, created on the fly. It is not meant to enjoy a reader, just to catch knowhow, to be digged out in possible later odd circumstances.
(This session is not documented fully, only by a few intermediate stops)
Three most relevant help screens in chronological order may be those three: (1) The MySQL start console mysqld.exe with no help messages at all, (2) the MySQL console called with the help parameter mysql.exe -? , (3) the MySQLAdmin console mysqladmin.exe .
First, I study this tutorial : http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/mysql_intro.html .
phpMyAdmin does not want start for a user without password (screenshot 20100322°1941). We have set one. But this works not exactly like told in the tutorial.
We try all combinations to access the database, but something seems wrong. More ideas might be found in Windows Post-Installation Procedures
We were lost. We abandon our workspace and checkout newly, to have the version before the unhappy password.
When running our usb webstack first time on a station where it has not yet been run before, of course there were several issues. We had to tinker e.g. the PHP path environment variable (chapter PHP Setup Details).
A major issue was how to deal with a MySQL service already running on this station. The MySQL we encountered, came from a former XAMPP installation.
The symptom was unimpressive: When running our mysql-startup.bat batchfile, mysqld appeared shortly in the Taskmanager, and immediately disappeared whithout any error message.
The curious thing, which cost me some time to find the issue, was: The XAMPP mysqld shows up in the Windows Services, but not in the Taskmanager. The USB mysqld shows up in the Taskmanager, but not in the Windows Services.
In the Windows Services window, logged-in as Administrator, we were able to switch the XAMPP MySQL Service on and off, but that was not enough. We had to uninstall it!
For this job helped us greatly a batch file we found in the XAMPP program folder: mysql_uninstallservice.bat .
The remaining question is as follows. Will it be possible to run two such MySQL instances side by side? The answer is yes, as you may find in GipsyCockpit batch files.
