MySQL not starting in 2003

Postby invictus » 25. September 2007 17:41

As the title states, I cannot get MySQL to run as a svc or to run at all, in the xampp control panel it says its starting but it never starts. Is this a bug, or is it something related to a windows setting? All of the other services start (this is for a school, we're developing the website to incorporate php + mysql, so they've never been running before this, FileZilla and Apache run perfectly though).

I have the same problem with the 1.6.4 beta2
But in 1.6.3a mysql as a service was working fine.
I don't know what version you have but maybe it helps.

[edit] I think it's somehow related to this message in the control panel:

*** WARNING DIRECTORY MISMATCH ***

Huh. That's weird. I don't get any message like that, it just says it's starting and says nothing further. We had 1.63a on there, but we just did a fresh install of 1.64a b2 and it still doesn't run.

I told you:

So you are not the only one, but 1.6.3a was working fine for me.
It's strange hopefully someone can help us.

I recommend to go back to 1.6.3a and try the .bat files in c:/xampp/mysql/ to manually install as service/start/stop etc

Oh, nevermind. I thought that 1.64 was the new version, I see now that I also have 1.63a installed right now, I'll look at the .bat files that you're talking about. Could it be a permission error in c:\program files\ like in vista? Although I don't really see that happening.

Okay, I see where the Directory mismatch is happening. I changed the .bat file to copy the my.ini file from d:\ instead of c:\ (d:\ is where xampp is located), it says it starts running from the new .bat file, but the service is only installed, it doesn't actually run it.

I started it through the command line, it says that I cannot find the file specified (my.cnf), is there any way to fix this?
