I need help to set up the Radio DJ app. This is the error I get when I install it. What am I supposed to do next?

Is mysqld.exe running as a system service? (Check Via Task manager) if it is enter your details into the database setup tool.
it should be

server = localhost or 127.0.0.1
Database = you can call it whatever you want
Username = root
Password = the one you chose when setting MySQL up

click install database

We actually recommend MariaDB over MySQL 8 as the performace of MySQL 8 is a bit pants.

here is how you uninstall MySQL8 and install MariaDB (If you want to change) https://djgarybaldy.blogspot.com/2020/08/how-to-uninstall-mysql-from-windows.html
