Execute the mysqld --install command

View the service service in the task manager (the service is stopped at this time)

Start the mysql service

Execute net start mysql to start the service. Only when the service is turned on can you link and operate the database. See the following display, the mysql server has been started at this time.

5. Command line login to mysql

After starting the service, continue to execute mysql -u root -p, you will be asked to enter the password at this time. At this time, it is necessary to copy the default password given to you by mysql above. Enter the password and press Enter.

After entering the password and pressing Enter, when the word Welcome... is displayed, congratulations! At this time, the mysql data was really successfully installed. Or green installation, zip decompression version, the kind that you don't need to uninstall when you don't want it.

Don't forget, all you have to do at this time is to change the password. You can't always use the particularly complicated default password that mysql gives you, right?

Execute set password='123'; At this time, the password is changed to the number 123. Pay attention to the semicolon when executing the command, because the data command is always operated.

At this time, you can execute the quit command to exit the database, and then re-execute the previous step mysql -u root -p and enter the password to log in to the database again. This is all about your database. The account is root and the password is 123. If you only use this database for development, you don't need to set a difficult password, because if you forget the password, there is only one way left. Uninstall completely and reinstall mysql.
