So yesterday I began working with xampp, it was really my first time. I am learning how to use php and incorporate it with MySQL and I ran into a problem. First, when I launch the "xampp control Panel v3.1.0 I receive this in the logs:
- Code: Select all
12:19:13 AM [mysql] Expected Path: e:\xampp1\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe --defaults-file=e:\xampp1\mysql\bin\my.ini mysql
12:19:13 AM [mysql] Problem detected!
12:19:13 AM [mysql] Port 3306 in use by "mysqld.exe"!
12:19:13 AM [mysql] MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
12:19:13 AM [mysql] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
12:19:13 AM [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL to listen on a different port
Secondly, every time I start apache I get "Access violation at address XXXXXX in module 'xampp-control.exe'. Then the control panel crashes for "xampp-control.exe has stopped working". I believe it has something to do with some other thing taking up port 80, but the error seems vague to me. I also get a "system error code 5" sometimes.
Thanks! Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm new to all of this. If you need any logs just reply and I'll add them ASAP.
I've looked for a "mysqld.exe" but I cannot find a file or anything anywhere on my computer that matches that.
