Hello. I just started using XAMPP on Windows Vista, and so far I am enjoying how easy everything is to access.
Today, I was able to get Apache to work after some issues (with IIS), and then started using MySQL without any problems. I was doing some successful PHP connects, insert, and selects to my database, when all of a sudden, my php page stopped working. As it turns out, the connect started to fail. I was not able to stop MySQL, or restart it, or even access it using phpMyAdmin. I forced stopped it, but since then I wasn't able to start it again. I've restarted my system, done multiple uninstalls and installs, and I even deleted my data from MySQL. Whenever I try to access it, it says I can't access the database from localhost. I don't know what happened, but would like to get this up and running again with anyone's help.
From phpMyAdmin, this is what is said:
#2003 - Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
Thank you in advance!
