How to quickly start MySQL

sql-stoppedFrom time to time, for whatever reason, SQL might not start when you boot your computer, and the first thing you know about it is this message when you try and start RadioDJ.

To resolve this you can usually just start the service manually:

  1. Select Start > Search (or Run) > services.msc
  2. Tip: On Windows 8.1/10 right click the start button and select run > services.msc

  3. Find your SQL instance in the list. This will be whatever you called it when you installed SQL (e.g. MySQL)
  4. Right click and select start
  5. Now either restart RadioDJ or allow the connectivity checks to be run via the database setup utility.
