  1. Thank you! Well done!

    Maybe someone can have a look at the following issues (Windows)?

    1) The C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0 folder inherits Users group permissions, but that group should not have read/write permissions here, especially on shared hosting servers! Maybe the installer should remove the Users group at all.

    2) After fresh installation, the my.ini file created by the installer contains a link to the 5.7 documentation.

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Joe, thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated.

      If you haven’t already done so, please report these issues to the MySQL bug database at over at using the “MySQL for Windows: Installer” category. That way it won’t get lost in the usual maelstrom of issues that we handle.
