I am having a problem with MySQL on my XAMPP setup. It was working fine until I uninstalled it to install 1.5.1 (I was running 1.4.13) My error is (HY000) Could not connect to MySQL on localhost '(10061)'...I don't know what to do I've reinstalled it probably 300 different times already each time uninstalling the services (apache, mysql) and restarting then installing it...I've done this probably 300 times. Apache works fine but MySQL just throws me errors. phpmyadmin won't work either! PLEASE HELP ME GUYS I NEED THIS FIXED TONIGHT! It's holding up a very important project!!!!!! thanks in advance!

first unistall XAMP

after go in Windows

you have

an file my.ini

delete this one


install XAMP again

if MySQL doesnt work again

go inside XAMP you have and little batch in MySQL folder

click on mysql_uninstallservice.bat

after this one done

click on mysql_installservice.bat

so in this way your mySQL work again fine "but first one you must be sure that you are deleted all mysql file e folders exists on your windows"

look at

c:\program files\mysql "you need to unistall and delete this folder"

c:\windows\my.ini or c:\winnt\my.ini (you need to delete before)
