Hi, like most people posting here I am new to Xampp so pardon any ignorance.
I am running Windows XP Professional SP3 with Xampp V1.7 with Patch 1.
When I start mySQL in the control panel it appears to start fine.
I then click the admin button to enter the winmysqladminscreen, get prompted for the user name and password and then enter the winmysqladminscreen dialog.
Once finished in this dialog I right click and select WINNT\Shut Down this Tool. The confirm shut down dialog appears and I confirm.
If I then go back into the XAMPP Control panel, the SQL Server is shown as stopped. When I click to start I get the following error showing in the on screen lo
ERROR: Mysql service not started [-1]
When I check the running processes the system shows the my sqld.exe is still running even though Xampp says it is stopped.
Additionally I am unable to remove the system service by unticking it.
The only way I can get the SQL to run properly again is to run the mysql_uninstallservice.bat in the mysql folder. I am then able to remove the service from XAMPP control panel.\
Once this has been done I am then able to restart the SQL and re-enter the admin area through XAMPP control panel.
Am I doing something wrong or is there a bug in the XAMPP control panel?
Any ideas or suggestions would be most appreciated as I have enough grey hairs already LOL
