I have MySQL 5.0 on my W2K network. It has always worked fine.
For some unknown reason, this morning one of my applications that uses the
database, gave the following error message:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost'
(10061) ...
The Windows Event Viewer tells me: Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not
I have tried to use the MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard (after
having deleted the old MySQL service), but nomatter how I configure it, it
keeps telling me: Could not start the service MySQL. Error 0.
Would a complete re-installation help me? And if so, is there a way to make
sure that I'm not losing my old data?

Re: MySQL stopped

The message you recieved is basically saying that MySql is not running
on your W2K system. You need to restart it in Windows Services. That is
it. No reinstallation is required. Be sure to go to the Windows
Services Manager and restart the MySql app. It should be fine then.
