Hi everyone! Is there a way to set a MySQL server to not automatically start execution until prompted by the user? I recently installed a MySQL server on Windows and I'm having a little bit of problem at start up.
Everytime I go to the command prompt to type the command mysqld --console to start the MySQL server, errors are returned to me that say an application is already using the MySQL server and that I should close this application to get rid of the error. But there's no application that's actually using it. I found a way to terminate this unknown "application" by ending the process mysqld.exe in the task manager. But the problem is, everytime I turn my computer on, the mysqld.exe is again one of the processes running; it's like automatically running upon booting the PC so I have to terminate this process again in the task manager to successfully start the MySQL server. I do this everytime and I'm thinking there must be a way to terminate this process so that I won't be terminating it in the task manager and such that I could successfully start the MySQL server when I want to. So can anyone give me a way to stop the mysqld.exe from running everytime I turn on my PC?
Answers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!
