Hey dagamerc13,

Open your /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf file. You can use this command to do so and have proper editing permissions:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf

Now find the following and comment it out as shown here:

Code: Select all

Change it to:


Now type this to restart everything:

Code: Select all
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp restart

That should change it back to the default.
