MySQL dont start if its installed like a service [SOLVED]

Postby brunushky » 10. June 2008 17:49

Hi All

I was using XAMPP for almost two years and is the first time that I have a problem like this ... I installed xampp-win32-1.6.6a-installer.exe in a new and "clean" WinXP SP2 installation, and seems that everything run fine but few days later I found that MySQL was not runing.... I try to start it from control panel but nothing happend ... so I unistall xampp (may be here I does something wrong, dont stop the services :( )....

Well the problem is that after reinstall arround 10 times I cant get it working fine... I remove the service by hand following some instructive post ...also I delete the registry but always the same .... In control panel if I select to install MySQL like a service (Svc) it never start again... just retun

ERROR: Mysql service not started [-1]

if I uncheck install the service (Svc) then I can click start and it works...but that is the only way...

Any Idea? some one have another way to fix this... instead of just reinstall or delete registry?...

Thanks :)

ERROR: Mysql service not started [-1]

There is a Windows Eventlog with a better error message.

Yes my user have all the administrator's rights ...is the only user setting on this machine... :(

I install xampp many times before... and is the first time that I have this kind of problems... also I try the version before this one and I found the same problem... strange thing because I was using that version the last year and everything goes very well.....

Any way thanks...

Hi all.... First, thanks to Widemann for try to help me to solve this problem and for everyone that took the time to read this post :) ....finally I solve it follow this post:

http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopi ... 889#113889

I did all that Izzy said... I did something like this before but the only thing that I did diferent this time was change the install foldername... I think that this was the key in my problem...

so I did this:
1 - stop all XAMPP services
2 - be sure that uninstall all XAMPP services
3 - confirm that you unistall all XAMPP services
4 - restart
5 - do a fresh install in a diferent folder

That works for me ....

Thanks for all... and thanks to Izzy for all the information. :)


Now I need to solve this some one can help me to figure out this
