I have MySQL setup on Windows along with Plesk. The version is 5.0.45 Community.
The databases I have on the server are MyISAM as well as InnoDb, but predominantly innodb.
I had 8G memory on my server, but MySQL isn't going up more than 1.3G and tweaking the settings isn't helping. I tried to increase the memory allocation for innodb_buffer_pool_size, it works if I set it up to 1G, but if I set 2G, or above the server doesn't come back online!
I want mySQL to use at least 5-6 Gigs of the memory I have for performance, but I can't get this to work.
Can anyone please help? My mysql config file is below (there are 2 mysqld sections... when i used MySQL workbench it created another one!)
