Which is a better way to install multiple instances of MySQL / MariaDB / etc on a single Windows box?
Manually setting different ports?
Something else? (Sandbox, mysql_multi, etc, seem to fail on Windows.)
Once they are installed, I intend to write a Perl script to iterate through the instances to get timings (etc) for comparison. So, they need to be accessible in some manner from a single thread.
(I can figure out the settings, RAM, disk, etc; it's just the installs that I am looking for advice on.)
