Start MySQL server

I decided to write some technical blog on this site. But I’m not a native English speaker, I will try my best to write in English. I might write in Chinese if I really want to write something.

I used MS SQLServer a few years ago. And I found that MySQL is very alike SQLServer. The free version of MySQL is community server. We can download the newest Windows Installer for MySQL 5.7.

1)  To start the server:

In the official website, they suggest me use command line( windows key +R-> cmd ->

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\bin\mysqld

But I met a problem here. The window crashed immediately. There are many solutions that suggest you change root blablabla. But actually you only need to do this:

  1. Win + R
  2. Run services.msc
  3. Right-click on MySQL57
  4. Start the service.

This is an advice from stack overflow.
