MySQL Service stuck as "Starting"

Postby woodgrain » 02. November 2015 03:16

Hi guys,

Installed onto a Windows Server 2012 R2 x64 box.

  • Running the XAMPP program as Administrator
  • Followed the steps in this article to fix some issues with MySQL:
  • Installed both Apache and MySQL as a service
  • Apache starts and can display sites
  • MySQL service says "Starting" in Windows services
  • Tried killing the mysqld process and restarting the service, same issue
  • Tried running it as an application instead of a service, doesn't start
  • Following this tutorial I created a temp folder and added the temp location to the mysql.ini, still "Starting":
  • tempdir=C:/xampp/mysql/nobackup/temp

Any help appreciated - thanks!
