I'm using xampp1.6.4, quite happily on one machine together with a forum and blog.
I am trying to learn PHP & MySQL so I decided to install xampplite 1.6.4 on another machine so I can follow a tutorial, create php docs all over without interfering with the existing set-up. Using xampplite as I was only interested in apache, mysql and php.
downloaded a zip version and unzipped - no problem. Started apache-start.bat - fine. Then tried to start mysql with mysql-start.bat - failed with message:
"can't find d:\xampplite\mysql\share\english\errmsg.sys"
only problem is : the file exists. I followed this exact path and the file exists.
Thinking it was a problem with xampplite - I downloaded a fresh copy of xampp 1.6.4 and unzipped that. When I tried to fire up apache and mysql - same result!
xampp 1.6.4 runs fine on my other machine (under xp) This machine uses windows Me. Can that be the problem? If not - what's going on?
