  1. Oops, you're right. I feel kind of stupid now. I should have quit while I was ahead.
  2. I may be kicking a dead horse by posting yet another opinion, but I want to say that you can avoid the need to open a command prompt and also avoid having to edit the batch file by simply setting the target of a Windows shortcut to: "C:\Uniform Server\Server_Start.bat" w mysql Of course you must modify this to conform to the actual location of the Uniform Server on your own machine. Sometimes I like to have the Uniform Server go directly to the website I am developing rather than having it display the apanel. This is especially nice when showing off your work to a customer or to colleages. I accomplish this by changing the file: "C:\Uniform Server\diskw\home\admin\www\redirect.html" There is a javascript script element in this file containing a window.setInterval() call that you can change to reference your home page. For example: window.setInterval("window.location = 'http://localhost/mycoolsite/'", 500); Of course you should safely preserve the original so you can revert to displaying the apanel since that is the best approach for general development use. Finally. an experiment that I have not tried yet is to make the redirect.html modification above and then put the whole thing onto a CD-ROM with an autorun that will launch the server with the correct SQL enabled command line.
  3. It is also important to make sure your text editor does not add a Windows/DOS line terminator (0x0D0A) to the mysql_password file. It took me quite a while last night to figure this out the hard way. Also read the post by Yofazza in the topic "What is the mySQL password". phpMyAdmin is an excellent program and the Uniform Server is a great package.
