Installing MySQL 5.7.2: error 1053
Last September 2013 was the month of #MySQL on www.manejandodatos.es. I read that the new MySQL 5.7.2 was the best ever MySQL version. So I decided to download it and install it from here: dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.7.html.
I downloaded the full Windows MySQL installer, around 193 Mb. The changes and features of the new version are here.
Without any action, I execute the installer and it detects that I have a MySQL 5.6 server installed, and it proposes me to update from versión 5.6.10 to 5.6.13, last available (versión 5.6.14 is beta).
So, I decided to uninstall MySQL 5.6 and give a MySQL 5.7.2 version a try.
Uninstalling MySQL 5.6
This task is the same as I did when I told you how to uninstall MySQL 5.1 o 5.5 (spanish).
Just ckicking on “Execute“, my MySQL server is uninstalled, and very fast! I am asked to delete the databases as well, but I answer “no”!
Installing MySQL 5.7.2
Back to the installer, I press on Add o Modify Product or Features:
I select to install MySQL 5.7.2:
You can check if you want to add or update more products, and click on “Next“, where the installer will check for the requirements:
And before continue:
The installation begins:
Once completed, I have to configure the server:
First, lets select the type of server:
Next, the password for root:
And next, give a name for the MySQL service (i name it MySQL57) and select the user of the service. I left the 3306 port because it’s free (I uninstall the MySQL 5.6 server):
And .. the most increible thing is that I receive a pretty error 1053 with the service.
Something is not right, … it can be something related to the service!
Once again, a new MySQL installer and a new error. In this case, error 1053, and it looks even worst that the 1067 error when installing MySQL 5.6.
I am tremendously dissapointed, but I must admit I got lucky, because I did this process on a test machine!
