Install MySQL on a Windows Server

Installing and setuping MySQL is easy to do on Windows. Just download the Community edition from or from our downloads area and run the setup program
I recommend not enabling strict mode since that may break some applications that use MySQL. Also recommend to install the PATH variable which gives easy access to the mysql prompt.
