MySQL 5.051a-community-nt-log Community Edition installed on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP1.
This MySQL Server is part of a client's WAMP installation
MySQL was originally using the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory for temp files. From time to time, the client would get the following error when trying to access data in a table in phpMyAdmin.
"#1 - Can't create/write to file 'C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\#sql_1760_0.MYD' (Errcode: 17)".
Which would require a restart of MySQL to fix.
Thinking this might be a problem with using the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory, I created another directory that the MySQL service had read/write access to and pointed tmpdir to that directory in my.cnf.
I restarted MySQL and accessing tables from phpMyAdmin worked fine for one entire day and then the following morning, phpMyAdmin started complaning about the same error.
There is more than enough disk space on both the C: and E: drives
Not seeing any other errors from MySQL.
Window's application logs don't mention anything about the error.
No information in MySQL's logs
Database in question is a mix of MyISAM and InnoDB tables.
I have not yet veririfed, if the inaccessible tables are only the ones in MyISAM.
Has anyone seen this problem before with a WAMP MySQL 5.0 installation and know what might be causing it and or how to resolve this error?
