There is actually a native windows MySQL server (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/win...stallation.html). However, because your website is likely to end up been hosted on not-windows, you may want to consider installing LAMP in a VM. The simplest (but least secure) way to do this is to use Ubuntu Server with the LAMP option enabled.

xampp for windows, lamp for linux. Just be sure to set passwords for everything after you install it.

for MySQL it is easy download the community edition from the website:

http://mysql.org/downloads/mysql/5.0.html#downloads

There are the GUI tools that are the done by the Mysql guys:

http://mysql.org/downloads/gui-tools/5.0.html

BUT (and there is always one)

I prefer to use PHP My Admin which you can get from:

http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php

Though you will have to install PHP as well for your web server I use Apache in Dev and IIS in production.

Xampp will take care of all of those in one download. :)

Ok that is sweet package then, I have not run a Windows Laptop for quite a while now so have not had a need for such a solution. Though I will run up a Windows DomU and have a look at it as that would be a great solution for some peopel I know that runa site/blog as a hobby and need a dev space to work in.
