Installing MySQL 5.7.2: error 1053

Posted by in MySQL

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:

Instalandor de MySQL

Instalandor de MySQL

I select to install MySQL 5.7.2:

Selección MySQL 5.7 para instalar

Select MySQL 5.7 to install

You can check if you want to add or update more products, and click on “Next“, where the installer will check for the requirements:

Requisitos para instalar MySQL 5.7

And before continue:

The installation begins:

Once completed, I have to configure the server:

MySQL 5.7 ya instalado

MySQL 5.7 installed

First, lets select the type of server:

Instalando MySQL 5.7 - Configurando el servidor

Instalando MySQL 5.7 – Configurando el servidor

Next, the password for root:

Instalando MySQL 5.7 - Configurando el administrador

Instalando MySQL 5.7 – Configurando el administrador

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):

Servicio Windows para MySQL 5.7

Servicio Windows para MySQL 5.7

And .. the most increible thing is that I receive a pretty error 1053 with the service.

Error al crear el servicio MySQL 5.7

Error al crear el servicio MySQL 5.7

Something is not right, … it can be something related to the service!

Conclusion

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!
