Setup

MySQL Server Binaries

MySQL ships with a number of server binaries to choose from. For standard/typical use and functionality, the preference is for server binary 'mysqld'.

Startup

MySQL can be installed as a Service (automatic or manual start-up) or started as a standalone console application. The MySQL server can be configured to listen (and communicate) on all interfaces (0.0.0.0), the loopback (127.0.0.1), or any other address. The MySQL server can also be configured to skip networking (TCP/IP) and/or connect via named-pipes (sockets).
