Apologies for repeating a similar question to others.
To use mysql I have previously double clicked the mysql.exe file in windows explorer.
Now it doesn't work. There is a quick flash and nothing appears....
Also, when apache starts it says at the top that pma@root (etc..) does not have access to the mysql server and so does not start mysql!!
It also says deactivated in the status table for mysql....
I am a novice to this so could anyone suggest how to improve this situation!!
Thank you, danke,
