I am installing the latest version of MySQL, the 5.7 release. In windows you have the option to run MySQL as a service or application.I recommend install it as a service. When creating the installer service will give us two options;
i) use a Standard System Account
ii) use a Custom User
Like show in the next screenshot;
I recommend, as a database administrator, and generally in all, SQL Server, Oracle … MySQL systems running like Custom User and have a domain account specified for this task.
The problem I have is that I get the following error;
“The user does not Have the minimum rights required to start the service”
In this case the system admin to solve this issue has granted the “log on as service” permission to this specific account that I use for windows services.
