In order to create a development environment for a project I am working on, I recently needed to install MySQL Server.  The first step was to download the msi.

Running this presents you with the installer splash screen, detailing the version of MySQL that you are about to install - in this case MySQL Server 5.1.

Next you can choose whether to install a Typical, Complete or Custom installation.  Although this is the first time I have installed MySQL and the Custom option states "Recommended for advanced users" I opted to carry out a Custom installation, specifically so that I could be sure of what features and components were installed.

On the Custom Setup screen you can choose which components to install.  By default the Developer Components are not included, but I opted to include some of these elements.

Next up is the ready to install screen and then the intsallation progress.

Following the completion of the installation you are shown a few screens with details of the MySQL Enterprise subscription option.

Finally the installation is complete and you are offered the chance to configure and register MySQL.

Next I will be looking at the configuration of MySQL Server 5.1.
