MySQL Standalone

Postby albru123 » 11. April 2013 17:49

Hi, I have MySQL standalone from XAMPP and it's running as service. My Question is how to set-up XAMPP to use this my MySQL without showing annoying error messages:
Code: Select all
18:36:03  [mysql]    MySQL Service detected with wrong path
18:36:03  [mysql]    Change XAMPP MySQL settings or
18:36:03  [mysql]    Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
18:36:03  [mysql]    Found Path: ERROR: Not Able To Open Service Manager
18:36:03  [mysql]    Expected Path: c:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe --defaults-file=c:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini mysql
18:36:03  [mysql]    Problem detected!
18:36:03  [mysql]    Port 3306 in use by "mysqld.exe"!
18:36:03  [mysql]    MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
18:36:03  [mysql]    You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
18:36:03  [mysql]    or reconfigure MySQL to listen on a different port

What line in my.ini I must change to get this to work?
(My XAMPP version isn't 1.8.0 but 1.8.1. I think there's not so much diffs)

In short, you can't.

Controlling programs that are not part of XAMPP is not supported by the XAMPP Control Panel. What you can do is reconfigure your XAMPP MySQL to a different port and reconfigure the XAMPP Control Panel to use a different MySQL port and service name. This will allow you do use the two simultaneously.

Also, consider grabbing the latest control panel from my signature.
