mysql error message--new installation

Postby tribippy » 15. October 2006 16:11

I just installed XAMPP today. In the past, I have tried other installations and Apache Mysql and PHP (could never get them configured), but i have uninstalled them and removed the associated folders, etc.

The problem:
When I try to run mysql_start.bat, I get this:

"bind on TCP/IP port do you already have another mysql server running on your port:3306"

I shouldn't have another mysql server running on the port because I have removed everthing.

Any ideas?

Thanks

What says "xampp-portcheck.exe" about port 3306?

portcheck

Portcheck says the status of MySQL port 3306 is
c:\Program Files\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe

I looked at my my.cnf file, and it has a comment that mysql should not listen on TCP/IP unless as a security feature. I'm not sure how to make sure it is listening at the right place.

Thanks

The this is not true:

As you can see, MySQL is up at the moment. (If MySQL is down, the port is free (without a program name) in the portcheck.)

Oh, um, boy am I a newbie. I finally figured it out. When I was trying to start the service, I meant, get to use the MYSQL service, not "start the service" in terms of the XAMPP thing.

So, I went to mysql.exe and started it up, and I think I am good to go.

Thanks for your help Wiedmann, it guided me to make an important (albeit simple) realization about how this stuff works.
