Today I upgraded my local test environment from XAMPP 1.4.16 to 1.5.0-pl1. I did so by first uninstalling 1.4.16 (saving htdocs and mysql\data) and then installing 1.5.0-pl1.
I can't get MySQL to start and remain active. When I click the "Start" button in the Control Panel (v2.1), the word "Running" appears for no more than a second and the "Start" button changes to "Stop". Then the word "Running" dissappears and "Stop" reverts back to "Start". The Control Panel displays "MySql started"; however, "mysqld.exe" does not appear in Windows Task Manager.
Is there something in any of the configuration files that shoudl be adjusted? I still have a backup copy of all the 1.4.16 environment and can copy appropriate files back, if needed.
Thanks in advance for the wisdom and experience of the XAMPP users.
