XAMPP on Vista Problem with starting MySQL [SOLVED]

Postby BaHko » 07. October 2011 13:26

I have problem starting MySQL from the control panel.
If I start it manually thru d:\xampp\mysql_start.bat everything is ok. I need this in order to set new location for my MySQL data.
Everything is ok thru the bat file but not thry the Control Panel.

Any suggestions are welcome.

I was using the standard one for 1.7.7
But after that I saw there is a new one and I downloaded it. Still the same problem.

The solution was to set all the paths correctly to start manually
d:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld --install

And after couple tries everything is normal now.

I was even able to install PEAR with no problem just reminder

RUN CMD AS ADMINISTRATOR....

I saw that there are some problem when I run php.exe
"The procedure entry point php_set_error_handling could not be located in the dynamic link library5ts.dll"

And PHP is ranting about problems with: mcrypt,mime_magic,ming,mssql.

The other one is:
" This Application has failed to start because php_pdo.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
CMD error: "PHP Start up could not load dynamic library: \xampp\php\ext\php_pdf.dll"

Some more errors: zip,zlib_filter,ps,paradox,

And that is about the errors. :D

But still... everything is working perfectly.
Probably it needs some more housekeeping before next release. ;)

There was no need to download the Control Panel Version 3 as it is included in the 1.7.7 release in the xampp folder, which perhaps reflects your degree of observation and competency in the matters you have described here. :shock:

1.7.7 works perfectly if you use an extractable archive version (zip or 7zip) and not the installer version as some PCs are not up to scratch and everyone's systems are not configured the same, hence many requests in this forum for installer exe version support.

In the next release, if you had bothered to read the sticky by kvo, mentions that a different installer will be used.

Also before posting again perhaps you would care to read the forum Announcements.:)
