Can't start mysql

Postby Danyal » 21. May 2015 16:49

I am facing the same problem. I have just installed xampp v3.2.1. It's running the apache successfully after allowing it through windows firewall but MySQL doesn't work. Here is the whole detail. It would be really kind if any of you share the solution with me too.

8:36:45 PM [mysql] Problem detected!
8:36:45 PM [mysql] Port 3306 in use by ""C:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.6/bin\mysqld" --defaults-file="C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\my.ini" MySQL56"!
8:36:45 PM [mysql] MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
8:36:45 PM [mysql] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
8:36:45 PM [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
8:36:45 PM [mysql] Attempting to start MySQL app...

8:36:48 PM [mysql] Status change detected: stopped

8:36:48 PM [mysql] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
8:36:48 PM [mysql] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
8:36:48 PM [mysql] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
8:36:48 PM [mysql] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

No, this is not the same problem.

XAMPP v3.2.1 is not a valid version number for the XAMPP bundle.
=> [FGA] Insufficient debug information (section "XAMPP version")

Which part of this error messages don't you understand? I think the information is very very clear.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Obviously you already installed another MySQL Installation before. Did you forget that? And why? You cannot run two Instances of MySQL using the same port.
