MySQL Server 5.0

Overview

MySQL Server 5.0 is a software program developed by MySQL AB. The most common release is 5.0.45, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named MySQLServer.exe. The setup package generally installs about 40 files and is usually about 15.93 MB (16,702,976 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 22% of users of MySQL Server come from India, it is also popular in the United States and Indonesia.
