View Full Version : [SOLVED] MYSQL issue

01-28-2014, 09:39 PM
Hey guys, so I downloaded a repack and attempted to run it, its running a mysqladmin.exe kind and it was pain to start to begin with but once I got it running now the worldserver says it wont run on any mysql below version 5.1 and I have no clue what that means. Shortly after the worldserver crashes. Is there anyway I could use mysql from a different repack and launch this repack without issues? Thanks in advance.

It means you need to update your mysql.

Hi, Cupid

What that message is telling you is that the version of MySQL server running inside the repack is older than what is required.

Try the following and see if it helps;

Ensure that any MySQL processes are terminated
Install a later version of MySQL Server (I recommend installing and using a wamp stack such as XAMP or WampServer)
Create the tables required and copy data across (don't have time to fully detail this but PM me for assistance with it)
Run auth and world server executables as per normal

Note: You can use the supplied PHPMyAdmin from the control panel of your wamp stack as a better DB administration method

I apologise if I make little sense but I can always clarify what you get stuck on

EDIT: Use Faded's standalone MySQL...it is optimised for wow repacks and Faded is a God ;p
