I'm using a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition and installed the latest 1.8.3 version of Xampp on it. This is a completely fresh install on a completely new operating system.
I'm able to start the Apache and Tomcat services from the Xampp control Panel, but when I try to start the MySql service, I get the following error - "MYSQL shutdown unexpectedly"
When I try to access PhPMyAdmin, I get the following error - #2002 - No Connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
I have tried all steps given in previous posts on this forum including the "bind-127.0.0.1" option, but nothing has worked. Could someone please help me out with this.
