I've installed MYSQL on my computer before and it worked perfectly. I recently tried to install it again and I THOUGHT it worked just fine until I tried to run it. It comes up as if it's going to work but then my computer slows almost to a stop. I can't get php OR winmysqladmin to read the database. Anybody have any ideas of what might have happened or might have gone wrong?
I use this:
Windows 98 (home computer, just for testing)
Apache 2.0.43
Php 4.3.10
Mysql 4.0.4 (all 3 came from a CD i got at the library.. didnt' want to download).

If maybe ya'll think the versions are just too old (but i still don't see how that would keep it from working) then I'll update and see if it works.. I just don't understand why it lags and doesn't even load anything.

Hard to say... do the logs shed any light on the subject?  You can run the DB without any of the other components.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

The logs show nothing. That was the first thing I thought to look at too. I can start up mysql and it'll be running but then the computer slows down about 5 seconds after loading mysql and it acts like the files corrupted or something. It just doesn't do anything. I looked at it a little more after posting this and that was a beta version of mysql so i'm gonna try to get a better version and see if that works. But i gotta leave for work now so that won't be til' tomorrow or sunday. But any more help on what the problem could be would be great. :)

Very strange... any corruption would make it into the logs.

Yea, i thought so too lol. Would you recommend I just get the latest apache, php, and mysql? lol, i'm starting to think that thats the only solution.

Well, definitely use a recent build of MySQL (even 4.1) -- I wouldn't change anything else until you can confirm that MySQL is running standalone without any issues.
