I am trying to enable binary logging on my Windows based MySQL server. I can enable it on my Linux system, but I keep getting errors when trying to invoke mysqld.exe with the --log-bin option.
c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin>mysqld.exe --log-bin[=c:\mysqlbinlog]
100919 15:45:29 [Warning] '--default-character-set' is deprecated and will be re moved in a future release. Please use '--character-set-server' instead.
Edit: Turns out I had forgot to restart MySQL server. I thought I had, but some other syntax errors caused it to fault, which I in turn corrected. Thanks for replies, not sure how I should mark this as solved.
