I recently upgraded to the latest package of xampp.
When I try to make an event, I get the error message: "cannot proceed because system tables used by event scheduler were found damaged at server start"
I tried to repair the table, but I didn't have the right to do so, although I was logged in as root.
I've google for this problem and it seems that others have also experienced this problem, but I was not able to found a solution.
Does anyone have an idea on how the fix this problem?
OK, just minutes after this posting, I found the solution on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/ ... erver.html
1) Upgrade MySql using:
upgrade_mysql --user=root --password=xxx --verbose
2)restart MySql service
I did it and it works. At least i was able to send: set global event_scheduler = on;
and show processlist had a user event_scheduler.
So it seems to be working.
