Plesk MySQL Install problems on Windows... Please HELP!
my host installed plesk for windows for me on my VPS, its running fine, however when it installed MySQL they did not enter the username and password in Plesk so it can make and manage databases.... i have tried going to the control panel and modifying my plesk install (modifying the MySQL install) with the following:
Detailed configuration > Server Machine > Multifunctional Database > Default install path > Decision Support > Enabled TCP/IP Networking, with default port > Standard Character Set > Install as a windows Service, start automatically >i enter my password > i push next to start the install
it stops and gives me this error: The template configuration file cannot be found at c:\SWSoft\Plesk\MySQL\bin\my-template.cnf
i even tried stopping the currently running MySQL processes, to no avail....
what i want to know is: If i UNINSTALL MySQL entirely and then reinstall it on it's own (not the one bundled with plesk) will plesk lose its configuration data?

I wouldn't recommend you reinstall MySQL, as Plesk stores its configuration data within MySQL - doing this would erase the data, probably getting you more confused.
I would suggest that you contact your host. If they have not configured the server properly, then the responsibility lies with them to sort the problem, regardless of whether the server is managed or unmanaged.
If this is of no avail, feel free to drop me an email with the server details, and I'll see what I can do to help.

Plesk runs a seperate MySQL database on port 8306 for it's data now. When a valid MySQL install is done on Plesk to support it for client usage it should be on port 3306.
