1. Microsoft Visual FoxPro compilation error file.
2. MySQL start-up error file.

Each time the MySQL database engine starts it appends to a .err file. If any errors are encountered during the start-up then they will be recorded in this file. Even when starting MySQL successfully the .err file will still be written to but will have information messages appended to it (and not error information).

The .err file is a text readable file, and can be viewed using any text reader.

The .err file is named after the computer. Its full name will be:


where computer-name is the name of the computer/server on which MySQL is being run.
