mySQL will not start

Postby =P= » 04. August 2005 20:59

Installed Xampp two days ago - I've used lite for ages and moved up to the full version.

Using Xampp Control, I cannot start mySQL.
The 'Stopped' flashes very quickly when I click 'Start'

I have run xampp-portcheck-1.2-Wiedmann.exe and that shows I have nothing running, yet I still cannot start mySQL using control.

If I click on the mysql_start.bat, it starts without a problem. So it's not a huge problem .... any ideas what I might have done wrong ? (And yes I have changed pw's but that was done through Xampp so I assume it took care fo any and all settings as it does run fine otherwise.

XP SP2 and all updates.
