Have posted this before, but now different problem I want to use central databases stored on a network drive, between a laptop and desktop PC. Desktop wired, Laptop wireless to router. Files on HD (C:\xampp\mysql\data and those on network drive exactly the same.
With datadir set to C:\Xampp\mysql\data, both computers load mysql ok. Service for mysql not running on either computer.
With the datadir set to network path (\\192.168.0.2....) will not work on either. Mapped network drive to a drive letter on the Laptop, setting datadir to it, and Mysql started with no problem. Mapped network drive to the same drive letter on the Desktop, changing datadir to the exact same mapped path and mysql will not start.
Laptop loads mysql ok with both computers on, so no conflict. But thinking maybe a conflict on desktop with both on, turned off Laptop but mysql still will not load on desktop.
Why laptop loads pid and port ok, and desktop will not, set to the same mapped drive and datadir set to the exact same path, I haven't a clue?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
