I just loaded XAMPP to run Apache MySql PHP and Perl on a windows Vista sp1 system. After much trial and error I finally got Apache to run and the control panel shows it as running. MySql however is another story, if I look at the control panel it claims that MySql is not running but when I run the mysql_start.bat it appears that it ios running. I get the follow in the cmd window:
Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden
Please dont close Window while MySQL is running MySQL is trying to start
Please wait ...
MySQL is starting with mysql\bin\my.cnf (console)
InnoDB: The log sequence number in ibdata files does not match
InnoDB: the log sequence number in the ib_logfiles!

080925 15:56:17 [Note] mysql\bin\mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.0.51b-community' socket: '' port: 3306 MySQL Community Edition (G PL)
Running phpMyAdmin and I find that it believes that MySql is running, what am I missing here to get the control panel to reflect what the bat file and phpmyadmin are telling me?
