MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard: Confirmation

After you click the Execute button, the MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard performs a series of tasks and displays the progress onscreen as the tasks are performed.

The MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard first determines configuration file options based on your choices using a template prepared by MySQL developers and engineers. This template is named my-template.ini and is located in your server installation directory.

The MySQL Config Wizard then writes these options to the corresponding configuration file.

If you chose to create a service for the MySQL server, the MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard creates and starts the service. If you are reconfiguring an existing service, the MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard restarts the service to apply your configuration changes.

If you chose to set a root password, the MySQL Config Wizard connects to the server, sets your new root password, and applies any other security settings you may have selected.

After the MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard has completed its tasks, it displays a summary. Click the Finish button to exit the MySQL Server Config Wizard.
