Hello, I hope someone out there can help because this is driving me insane.
I've used xampp for years, and have been using it on this specific PC for about a month with no problems, but now, out of nowhere, when I try to start MySQL via the xampp Control Panel, the green "Running..." message shows up but then disappears after a couple of seconds.
I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling MySQL, even fully reinstalled xampp and tried an older version. Deleted C:\WINDOWS\my.ini in case that was a problem, but still no luck! The MySQL port is free according to the port checker.
Thanks in advance,
