MySQL does not start in Windows XP

Postby guischarf » 10. January 2008 21:59

Hello,

I installed the latest version of XAMPP on Win XP SP2. Everything is find, but mysql, which does not star. I see no error messages that could lead into finding out what the problem could be.

Also tried without installer (method b, according to instructions) and the result is the same.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much

Hi,

Thanks Joh. Already thought of that. Actually, I did install XAMPP, removed (with the uninstaller) and installed it again. In the first installation mysql worked find. I wonder if the uninstaller is leaving something behind. I did not find a service running and the installation directory I removed completely. Anything else MySQL could have left behind ?

Thanks.
