Basic Trouble shooting
- Not working???
- Make sure you do not have a space between the function and the brackets. (e.g. NOW[space]() doesn't work!)
Some Syntax errors
- Watch out for SELECT > WHERE > ORDER
- Watch Data Types same e.g. INT is different than INT UNSIGNED
- Make sure order is correct for data types
- Correct: StockID INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL
- Incorrect: StockID INT NOT NULL UNSIGNED,
Where is the mysql database stored?
If you access the file my.ini in the C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1, edit in notepad and look for Path to database root (The following was in my one)
IF Application Data doesn't show in windows explorer you may need to change the Folder Options
- Use Tools>Folder Options> View
- Show Hidden Files and Folders
- (While you are there uncheck "Hide Extensions for known file types" - This is a common way to spot potential viruses trying to sneak into your system.)
