MySQL status invalid in Control Panel

Postby terabhrava » 04. December 2009 17:20

I have installed XAMPP on my windows xp machine, though I have got the apache server running successfully, mysql seems to be having some problems. On the XAMPP control panel, when I start apache - the status gets updated to "running" and it provides me an option to stop the process. But with mysql, the status does not change to "running" and continues to provide me the option to start the process. Note that in the task manager, I do see a mysqld.exe process running. Is this just a status issue on the control panel or an actual problem with mysql, and what would be the workaround. Thanks.

If there is already a mysqld running, the CP can't start it a second time.

Try xampp-portcheck to see which mysqld is running.

port-check indicates MySQL on port 3306 from the \xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe directory. Yet the control panel does not show MySQL as running, even after pressing refresh.

And "\xampp" is the path you can see if the CP is starting (Current Directory)?

BTW:
IMHO the portcheck is also showing a drive letter?

It shows the drive letter as well, the full path displayed is C:\www\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe

And "C:\www\xampp" is the path (Current Directory) you can see if the CP is starting?
