Hi, I need help setting up mysql, and then setting up my Java EE application within eclipse to connect to the DB. I need to get moving on this. So can someone layout simple steps on how to set this all up. I downloaded MySQl and the workbench, as I downloaded it, towards the end, that last part of "configuring" failed. Again, help would be really appreciate it.
I dont know what to take the screen shot of tbh. Like I downloaded Mysql, and I downloaded a GUI to connect to the DB, the GUI wont connect and I think I had an issue when downloading MYsql. I uninstalled and reinstalled mysql a bunch of times, but same issue.
Once that is complete, I would like to set up my code within eclipse to use hibernate to connect to the DB.
I dont know if I explained it correctly, does that make sense?
I dont have an issue downloading it, their is an MSI installer and its rly simple, I just have the issues I listed AFTER that.
I just uninstalled it again, and will now go about reinstalling it again.
I also have an issue with the "root password", it seems even though I install it over, I need the older root password. anyway to go about this? I saw some command line tut's on this, but I suck at cmd and when I tried it got nowhere.
Anyone know how to fix these issues? I have literally been stuck on this for many weeks and I need to get it fixed so I can get to actual coding.
It sounds as if your initial Windows install has recorded settings in the registry (dramatic chord here indicating dread and hopelessness) or elsewhere that the subsequent installs are picking up.
I'd google around to find out where MySQL stores stuff in Windows so you can clean out and do a true clean install.
Helpful hint: "Sucking at the command line" is something you need to get over and get over quickly if you want to make it as a developer. Relying solely on GUI tools to develop is like trying to play concert piano while wearing welding gloves.
People love to help around here, but you have to make it as easy as possible for them to do so. I would suggest you focus on one issue at at time. Try to give a clear explanation of what you've done. Saying " I downloaded a GUI to connect to the DB" doesn't really tell us anything. WHAT do you mean by "a GUI"?
How do you know the GUI won't connect? What did you try? what did it say when you tried?
the error messages that crop up actually mean something. Telling us what those are lets us help you.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
