XAMPP and Joomla

Postby kenotz » 07. December 2007 04:27

I installed XAMPP because my Joomla book says it. However, I couldn't install Joomla since I couldn't start MySql service. It says something like "Port xxxx already in use".

How will I change the port used by MySql so I can start it as a service? I need it for my lessons in Joomla.

thanks to all.
I have made this long as usual, because I lack the time to make it short.

First find out what, if anything, is using the mysql port that XAMPP needs exclusively.

Double click on xampp\xampp-portcheck.exe and make sure all ports are free.

If you find another instance of MySQL is using the port then try uninstalling that other instance.

You can also remove any sticking MySQL service like this:

Stop Apache, MySQL and FileZilla if they are running.

Close/Exit the XAMPP Control Panel.

Open a command prompt:
Click start
Click on Run...
Type: cmd.exe

Type:
sc delete mysql
Click OK

Close the command console

Try and start MySQL again.

BTW - sc is an acceptable abbreviation for sc.exe Windows Service Controller and will delete any stray services that won't shut down by any normal means, among other services commands.

Microsoft explains the Service Controller Commands here.
