Problems Stopping/Restarting Apaacche and Mysql

Postby reekingofrandomness » 28. March 2008 16:50

Apache and MySQL begin on start up however i can't stop them once they're started. This is annoying given that i have to restart MySQL to reset the user password.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium and when i click on the Stop button next to mySQL on the control panel it says in the box below:

Error: MySQL service not stopped

Thank you in advance for your help

What about just closing the service at taskmanager or Services.

You must run the control panel as an Administrator in order for it to Start and Stop services. Vista's UAC will be denying permissions to the control panel.

:?: This seems to be a recurring question but I have not seen a satisfactory answer in this forum yet. I have exactly the same problem. Both apache and mysql seem to be running on vista but when I click on stop on the XAMPP control panel for apache I get the error message "ERROR -1 busy mysql service not stopped". Trying to stop mysql first just results in the message "ERROR -1 busy".

I am logged on to the system via an adminstrator account so that appears not to be the problem.

Any help solving this problem would be appreciated! :P

Sorry, just figured it out :idea: ! Under vista you have to do the following:

1. Go to the xampp directory
2. Right click on xampp-control.exe
3. Click on properties
4. Select the compatability tab
5. Under privilege level check the "run this program as an adminstrator" box and apply the result.

Now when I logon as an adminstrator the control panel works as expected.
