I have been having an ongoing problem with MySQL. I had originally installed it from the MySQL website and actually had it working along with Apache and PHP 5.0
However one day I just could not get my MySQL started. I tried everything to try and get it going however I was unsuccessfull but then someone referred me to XAMPP.
So I have no downloaded XAMPP and Apache is up and running and File Zilla is running. I was unable to get MySQL running.
I have deleted before install all previous versions of MySQL,Apache, and PHP
When I tried to telnet localhost 3306 with my previous install of Mysql I got this error
Could not open a connection to host port 3306 Connect failed.
Can you please help me figure out why MysqL won't work on my system anymore.
