Hello, thankyou for taking the time to make this guide fantastic job. .
Just a few questions. I managed to get the server up and running and I created a GM account at lv 4 and made a 60 mage and logged in but when I tried to use commands such as:

*** QUICK SOLUTION TO FAILING AT STEPS 6 & 7 ***
Hey guys, if your mangosd.exe and realmd.log are closing immediately upon opening, check the log files.
For me it was because I had MYSQL 5.5 already installed on my system previously and the service was set to run MYSQL 5.5 when windows started up. I went to services and stopped MYSQL 5.5 which allowed me to connect to the Mangos MYSQL 5.5 server once I ran mysql.bat.
You must have a conflicting MYSQL install if you are getting the error:
Realmd.log will show you the error(s) causing the executables to fail.127.0.0.1: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
2017-01-25 05:35:51 ERROR:Cannot connect to database
OP great guide, thanks for this!
Thank you for the guide on making the server public
I followed all 6 steps; however when my friend connects externally he gest stuck in a realm loop. any thoughts / ideas?
The realm loop is he can connect with his account I created - he selects the region and realm but it never seem to authenticate and get him to the character screen.....I was able to duplicate this on my pc by changing the bind IP...
(1) Ports 3306 8085 3724 are being forwarded to my IP address ( I should note I am using the same PC to host the server as I am to play on the server - could this be an issue? )
(2) On my router I've changed from DHCP to static IP
(3 -4) In the realmd database I've updated the realmlist table address = my external IP port = 8085
(5) We have placed my external IP in our realmlist.wft file
Somethings we've already tired
(1) Open up a number of different ports - 8050 6881 7878 3036 80 1400 1401 - no difference -
(2) Host file entries
(3) Changing the Bind IP from 0.0.0.0 to my pc address
Thanks again for the guide - any help would be appreciated
