Hey when I open up the XAMPP control panel and try and start the MySQL service it says:
ERROR: MySQL service not started [-1]
I assume it is because the port MySQL is supposed to be running on is being used but I am not sure...any ideas?
Also I am not able to test my php files. I put them in C:\xampp\htdocs\nameOfMyFile.php, but when I point my web browser with apache running to http://localhost/nameOfMyFile.php I get an 404 error message saying object not found.
