View Full Version : Starting MYSQL 5.5 using windows installer from Oracle

I am trying to install MYSQL 5.5 using the windows installer from Oracle.

The install goes through and then starts the configuration and dies.

I have the antivirus and firewall turned off.
Port 3306 for the MYSQL is turned on.
I have set the IP address to the computer address using the "IPCONFIG" to get the IP address.
Have tried "localhost" and the computer name for the server.
I am installing this on a DELL laptop

However I cannot get into MYSQL 5.5. The password is never correct and does not match any that I try to apply. Is there a default password for MYSQL when it initially is started.

Thanks for your time

if you didn't set a password when you went through the configuration, then the password is blank.
