Sorry for the delay.
Below are the official link for MySQL Server in MAC:
Please try the above link and let me know if this works for you or not.
My computer uses Windows 10. This is not a Mac computer. Can you please resolve the issue?
I still have not received a response. I need to fix this and then do my class assignments.
Sometimes, there are some files which remains in the PC even after unistallation, Please completely remove the MySQL Server first:
Re-start the PC and re-install the MySQL server:
Hope this help.
If this doesn't work for you, we can connect remotely and fix the issue.
I am still getting the same error. In some forum, people who had this issue with mysql 5.7.19 recommended 5.6, which installs with no issues so I will try to install mysql 5.6 now.
I installed mysql 5.6.37 successfully. version 5.7 has soome known bugs so installation are common in this.
