MySQL in XAMPP versus MySQL for Windows

Postby dweiss » 28. May 2015 09:00

Can I use the MySQL as installed with XAMPP as I would if I installed MySQL for Windows as a standalone application? Here is what I want to do:

I would like to learn more about MySQL and every book I look at starts off by telling me how to install MySQL and some of its utilities, such as MySQL Workbench on my Windows PC. What I am trying to figure out is whether I can just use the version of XAMPP already installed with XAMPP and still make use of the utilities such as Workbench and various others? If so, do I need to configure the utilities in any special way to have them communicate with the MySQL / XAMPP installation?

Or, would I be better off just installing the regular Windows version of MySQL and if I do that will it interfere in any way with my XAMPP installation?

Thanks,

-Danny

This is my fault for the poor phrasing, but what do you mean by this? What are you calling the first option?

My apologies, but thanks for the response.

See your own posting:

So that is your first option. "Can I use the MySQL as installed with Xampp .....". Yes, you can.

YOU CAN USE ANY TOOL'S WITH MYSQL BUILT IN FROM XAMPP. FOR EXAMPLE : I'M INSTALL XAMPP AND THEN I'M INSTALLING WORKBENCH AND MYSQLFRONT, BUT I NEVER INSTALL MYSQL SERVICE AS STAND ALONE, I JUST USING MYSQL FROM XAMPP (BUILTIN).BECAUSE IF YOU HAS INSTALLED XAMPP (WITH MYSQL) AND THEN INSTALL MYSQL SERVICE AS STAND ALONE APPLICATION YOU WILL HAS A TROUBLE WITH THAT.8) 8) 8)

As I said, I was careless in my initial phrasing.

Nevertheless, thanks to everyone for the various responses.

So what is your problem now? What was "careless" and how?
