Hi to everyone
I downloaded and installed XAMPP from the internet in order to view some of the PHP sites on my local machine.
But there is a problem:
-during installation, the wizard asked me if I would like to install Apache and MySQL as services. I choosed both. The rest of the installation went ok, but when it started the xampp console error message appeared:
"Ports 80 or 443 (SSL) already in use! Installing Apache2-2 service failed!"
"Port 3306 already in use! Installing MySQL service failed!"
And when I open XAMPP control panel application and click start (MySQL) it says: "ERROR: MySql service not started [-1]
I managed to open the localhost and I created a sample file just to ensure everything is ok, but when I tried to open a website with MySQL database, again error text appeared:
"Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql2.namesco.net' (10060) in DISK:\www\htdocs\xampp\sitename\dbc.php on line 8
I cannot connect to the database because: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql2.namesco.net' (10060)"
Thanks in any case
