Need help with error

Postby ktread » 20. March 2016 22:16

This error keeps popping up when I try to start XAMPP:

Problem detected!
4:44:58 PM [mysql] Port 3306 in use by ""C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\bin\mysqld.exe" --defaults-file="C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\my.ini" MySQL57"!
4:44:58 PM [mysql] MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
4:44:58 PM [mysql] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
4:44:58 PM [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

Please help me figure out how to fix this, I am lost! Thanks

Obviously, you already have installed MySQL previously into the above mentioned folder. Dont you remember, what you are installing on your PC?? Anyway, you have to de-install that MySQL Installation as it collides with the Xampp installation.
