MySQL Not Working

MySQL Not Working

Postby seventoes » 01. January 2007 07:39

Hello

I downloaded XAMMP today to use as a dev server, but i cant seem to get MySQL working. I searched this forum a bit, and found this thread in the german section:
http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopi ... ight=mysql
But as of right now, there isnt a solution.

The control panel says running, but the web UI says that it isnt. No matter how i start the server (xammp_start.exe, the control panel, the batch files), it still says this.

I ran portcheck, and all of the needed ports were free.

It is a clean install, with nothing changed from the original download.

In your forum search, unless of course you speak German, select XAMPP for Windows in the Forum: drop menu under Search Options.
Then select Apache Friends in English under the Category: drop menu.

Your returned search results will now all be in English only.

You may have come across this recent post, in your search, that you could try.
Sometimes a registry entry will stick and the sc (Windows XP Service Controller) command will clear it and allow MySQL to start.

If you have difficulty understanding it then let me know.

no i dont speak german, and i couldnt find a solution in the english forums, so i decided to expand the search into the german forums too, but google doesnt translate too well when talking about technical stuff. :?

I tried deleting the mysql service the with sc command too, but i had no luck there (The specified service does not exist as an installed service.)
I checked the services manager to make sure it wasnt running under a different name, but there was nothing about mysql there.

You can post in the German forums in English as most of the mods and others in there speak English. Sometimes it helps if you can't get results in here.

Did you try uninstalling cleanly and then reinstalling. Sometimes the install can become corrupt for some unknown reasons. Might be worth a try first.

solution from the german thread (link)

- stop xampp and his compunents
- please check with "portcheck" if any other programm use the Port 3306
- start mysql manual over DOSbox and eith the mysql_start.bat
(if any problem, mysql write a message)

All right, i tried those three things. The first two had nothing out of the ordinary, and i dont think the third did either, heres the output:

Code: Select all
Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden
Please dont close Window while MySQL is running
MySQL is trying to start
Please wait  ...
MySQL is starting with mysql\bin\my.cnf (console)
070101 14:15:48 [Note] mysql\bin\mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.0.27-community'  socket: ''  port: 3306  MySQL Community Edition (GP
L)

Acctually, yes I have. I removed it about 2 days before I put XAMMP on this system.
