I'm just starting out learning PHP and MYSQL and I'm having allot of trouble with XAMPP in general.
My current problem is MySQL.
I had MySQL running and phpMyAdmin all running then I wanted to just add a root password so I did so via the Xampp page (http://127.0.0.1/security/index.php) and now I can't get MySQL running.
I get an error of "ERROR: MySql service not started [-1]". I've check windows service manager (I'm running Xp Pro Service Pack 3) and the service points to:
I've had a look and that prog (mysqld-shareware.exe) doesn't exist.
I really don't want to un-install as I've had this error before, I'd much prefer to fix it.
Any help on the matter would be much appreciated.
