The data is held in a single large file named ibdata1, and the file seems to have grown too large. This database is held on a Windows 2003 Server. I need someone to tell me how to extract the data from the large datafile without starting the database OR extend the allowed size for the file on Windows so that I can start db.
Starting the db from a command window, I get:
>> CMD window >>
C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>mysql
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (10061)
error file is found at bottom of file
