Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
I have a special character in my mysql password and whenever I attempt a backup I get the following message:
Can't access database. Is MYSQL running? Added the MySQL root password to end of command line?
Is there anyway around this problem without having to change the password as it would affect many applications on my system.
ps: the command I user is /opt/lampp/lampp backup passwd_with_special_character

Depending on the kind of special character you could place your password into ' chars. For example:
/opt/lampp/lampp backup 'passwd_with_special_character'
