When you start the MySQL Configuration Wizard for a new MySQL installation, or choose the Re-configure Instance option for an existing installation, you advance to the Configuration Type dialog.
There are two configuration types available:
Detailed Configuration and
Standard Configuration. The
Standard Configuration option is
intended for new users who want to get started with MySQL
quickly without having to make a lot of decisions about server
option is intended for advanced users who want more
fine-grained control of server configuration.
If you are new to MySQL and need a server configured as a
single-user developer machine, the Standard
Configuration should suit your needs. Choosing
the Standard Configuration option
causes the MySQL Configuration Wizard to automatically set all
configuration options with the exception of the
Service Options and
Standard Configuration sets options
that may be incompatible with systems where there are existing
MySQL installations. If you have an existing MySQL
installation on your system in addition to the installation
you wish to configure, the
Configuration option is recommended.
To complete the Standard Configuration, please refer to the sections on Service Options and Security Options in Section 126.96.36.199, “The Service Options Dialog”, and Section 188.8.131.52, “The Security Options Dialog”, respectively.
