All, Finally, the 28th reply seems to have brought this thread to an end. Yes, persistence finally got me there! Special thanks to Ash.
I am able to run both my Java code and php code on the same port (though nothing database conversations are happening) from the same machine. Here's the set-up : MySQL Server 5.1 + Query Browser : port 3306. This has a schema called as NS which is referenced by my Java code. EasyPHP : This is running in a diferent location with its stack in C:\. Fix : I knew all I had to do was a drop of my NS schema to a folder called data and from nowhere I crashed into this : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\data. I dropped my NS schema there; checked the query browser and there it was! Compiled my Java code and I was able to get back to my previous environment. So, no port conflicts, no different usernames. So far so good. Talk to you all soon as I am gearing up with programming questions now. --Shreyas On Thu, Jun 3, 2010 at 1:02 AM, Shreyas <shreya...@gmail.com> wrote: > Bob, > > That was a separate installer.
