General Problem

Postby CPD » 23. December 2009 13:23

For some reason xampp wont work at all. It was working fine untill i started messing around with it because i locked myself out of phpMyAdmin by changing the premissions of my main user. I then reinstalled it after uninstalling the older version and it still wont work. I still cannot get into my phpMyAdmin and neither Apache or MySQL work anymore. They wont run at all. If i try to start the service it says it cant find the .exe file.

possible: the old services are not removed befor reinstall.
In this case, the new Services cold not be installed.

remove the old serivces by Windows sc utility
Code: Select all
in command-window (cmd.exe).

sc delete apache2
sc delete mysql

then install the new services.
