Help - reinstall

Postby installerrors » 22. November 2015 01:40

I was using XAMPP coupled with Netbeans very smoothly without any issue.

PHPMyAdmin suggested that I give my root user an actual password instead of the default "". So i did and ended up kicking myself out of XAMPP.

After digging on the internet i read a suggestion to uninstall the software and reinstall it. after doing so, I can not connect to apache or mysql what so ever.

here is the log, PLEASE HELP!

Difficult to say what the problem is.
first of all please deactivate the autostart functionality. It is not helpful at this time.
Then please close all XAMPP components and execute the setup_xampp.bat script.
After that please restart your control panel with enhanced administration rights (rightclick -> run as administrator)
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)
