2.3.2. Installing MySQL with the Automated Installer
New MySQL users can use the MySQL Installation Wizard and MySQL
Configuration Wizard to install MySQL on Windows. These are
designed to install and configure MySQL in such a way that new
users can immediately get started using MySQL.
The MySQL Installation Wizard and MySQL Configuration Wizard are
available in the Essentials and Complete install packages. They
are recommended for most standard MySQL installations.
Exceptions include users who need to install multiple instances
of MySQL on a single server host and advanced users who want
complete control of server configuration.
