Hi,
I have installed successfully mysql on my windows 98 machine.
But when I try to start the server by typing mysqld-max --standalone
I get the below error:
"error: Found option without preceding group in config file: C:\WINDOWS\my.ini at
line: 1
Program aborted"
I start the server from c:\mysql\bin directory.
Also the my.ini file is under the c:\windows directory.
the contents of my.ini file are:
basedir=c:/mysql
datadir=c:/mysql/data
what is wrong?
please let me know.Thanks in advance.
Trupti

I believe the first line of the my.ini file should be:
[mysqld]
I have never added the my.ini file and my installation seems to work without it. I am using the mysqld-max-nt server.

Hi Matthew,
If I put the line [mysqld], nothing seems to happen I mean at the dosprompt the program doen't print any thing and after 2/3 sec it comes to the command promt.
I am following the MySQL installation instructions.
Do I have to configure the driver before starting the server?
Thanks,
Trupti

It doesn't print anything on the command line to signify that it is running. You should be able to open another command prompt and run C:\mysql\bin\mysql. If you get a mysql prompt then you will know it is running.
