[URGENT] Xampp problem..

Postby Remyx » 01. October 2010 10:12

Hey guys, today I accidentally hit uninstall in my xampp folder, uninstalling xampp without being able to cancel the uninstallation. I was afraid my databases would all be deleted, so I did a system restore to Sept. 24th, 2010. (I host a gameserver + website with phpmyadmin, and I was afraid all of the account information/player data would be lost). When the restore was complete afterwards, I tried running xampp, but neither Apache, nor SQL would run. In CMD, I hit c:\xampp\xampp_start, hoping it would work, but it said that httpd.conf could not be found, and mysql\bin\my.cnf could not be opened.

It is very important for me to get the server running as SOON as possible, as over 300+ players connect to it every day.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated.

What kind of "System restore" is that?

That is not a "restore" of software, it is a Windows System restore. As Xampp is not part of Windows, it is not restored.

Do you have any backups of Xampp (i.e. the MySQL Data folder or similar)?

If you dont have any backups, its time for panic. I cannot understand why people dont make backups, they always have to learn it the most painfull way.

I've never heard of a MYSQL data folder, with the DB info... Where would that be located? Because if that existed, I would probably still have it.

It is a subfolder of the Xampp Installation Folder, i.e. C:/xampp/mysql/data (assuming that Xampp is installed to C:/xampp). Replace c:/xampp by your Xampp Folder if necessary.

This has also happened to me.

And no I did not have a backup, though it was all development / temp databases it's not a big deal.

On the other hand the system restore has just completely disabled my xampp install.

I changed my computer form a domain to a work group then used the restore point to re-join the domain.

Now the xampp setup is not working I'm getting
Code: Select all

Apache is giving me 403 errors on all page requests, though it will start unlike mysql.

Any ideas / thoughts? Other than a re-install? (which I may just have to do anyway)

It would be good to know if xampp will stop working after a system restore in Windows 7.

Thanks,
Ron
