I have a problem with my xampp version, which is actually 1.5, but the same problem is existing also with newest version available (1.7.3).
Everytime, when I've started Xampp (for windows) and also all standard services (apache, mysql,...) I want to use it. So I'm looking normally first to the status-section. But there some services (changes, when I'm pressing the "status"-button) are shown as not active. So I've made some test using the option "cd collection", but everytime it shows me the message, that it could not connect to database and asks, if someone changed the password maybe or if it's running.
On Windows Taskmanager I've controlled, that it is running and the only password changing I've made using the security-section.
I tried to find some help in the Internet, but without sucess.
Maybe one of yours can give me a tip?
