I am currently developing an application using Ruby on Rails/MySQL, so I already have a mysql server configured and going.
I'm getting ready to start on a PHP application, so I wanted to use xampp to develop that. I thought when I installed it that it would be smart enough to register it's mysql installation as a separate server, but unfortunately it wasn't and it completely destroyed my other mysql install.
I just finished cleaning that up and getting mysql reinstalled.
Is there a way to have xampp use the one I already have installed, or make sure it doesn't try to compete with it in any way?
Thanks for the help.
