I am on Windows 7 64 bit.
MySQL starts and stops again.
When run directly from explorer it says "there was an error and it has to close".
CODE: SELECT ALL
"#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)"
I have removed and reinstalled xampp entirely.
Allowed through the firewall and turned the firewall off.
Turned off UAC.
Emptied windows host file.
My computer is malware free.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!?!?!?
The reason that MySQL stopped working for me is because I had used tunngle, I would imagine this to be a case of network priority issues or something. I have dealt with changing network priorities in the past but I cannot recall how on Win7.
Even though I had closed tunngle and stopped the tunngle service in the background, the issue continued. I have to restart the computer in order to set things straight again. If anyone has more information on how to solve this issue or perhaps even how tunngle effects networking in Win7 that would be appreciated. I will get in contact with the folks at tunngle too.
Something to keep in mind if anyone else has this issue.
