Something else going on there you aren't showing? What does your control panel log window say when you start mysql?

If that's all it says then you have a bigger problem than mysql.

If I were to take a wild guess, I would say you installed mysql 6 in program files and it is still running. You need to stop that service and uninstall that program since you are using XAMPP.

No quitre the contrary to what you say : "I would say you installed mysql 6 in program files and it is still running" the only "mysql 6" which I have ever tried to install was Workbench 6 and I could never get that running!! I went out of my way to disinstall every instance of mysql yesterday for it to not interfere with activating in xampp. It still however does not come on for me.

Check your program files directory.

Code: Select all
7:23:31 PM [mysql] Found Path: "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 6.0\bin\mysqld"

ok you are right about finding MYSQL in Program Files. But I never found mysql server 6 but mysql servers 5.1 and 5.5 which I remember installing recently. When I try to delete the MYSQL folder it doesn't let me, saying that a file or a folder it is in is busy with something else! I closed down xampp but still got this mesg. what do I do now?
