Hi everyone.. So, i'm kinda new in this php programming and i've just downloaded xampp and installed it.
The thing is that when I start the xampp control panel, these errors show up:

note that all errors are related to mysql, please use some easy language cuz I'm n00b in this stuff.

Well - it looks like MySQL was previously installed.

What you do to fix things now will depend on if you need that previous installation or not.

If you are unsure why that is, you should check in Windows Service manager and get the Path to executable from the Properties of the MySQL service.

Good Luck

EDIT: Well, I've solved the problem ( I've unistalled both mysql and xampp) and that problem from the printscreen didn't appear anymore after reinstalling xampp.
BUT
another error occured when I was going to open , look:

Image

it says: couldn't connect: " invalid config...
you should check username and pass on config.inc.php and make sure that they match with the info provided by mysql server admin" or something like that
where do I find this config.inc.php and setup my pass/username?

Did you try using the XAMPP Security option?
