The err file does not display anything. However when I try to go to phpadmin via localhost/phpmyadmin, I get this error:
#1130 - host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server."
The control panel says MYSQL is running.
However if I stop it and try to restart it with the "mysql_start.bat" it says
MySQL is starting with mysql\bin\my.cnf (console)...
mysql\bin\mysqld: ready for connections....
port 3306 MySQL Community Edition (GPL)
Nothing else. I think it is still looking for something because when I try to close the window Windows says that the program is still running and that I have to close it early if I want to close the window. So I End Now.
I think it comes back to my my.ini, config.inc.php,
I looked for "mysql\bin\my.cnf" but could not find it.
What is changing the files! Why would it work fine when I install but once I stop mySQL everything craps out???
Are there file conflicts somewhere?
