MySQL Not Working Correctly

Postby DarkMantis » 24. February 2010 14:36

Hi All,

I am trying to run LAMPP 1.7 for linux, I have installed it and PHP, and the FTP are working fine, its just the MySQL protocol which isn't working.

There is a reason I chose to run the 1.7 apposed the new version 2, This is because I need to run expression engine which requires Zend Optimiser and that doesnt work with the newest PHP version, so I needed to downgrade Lampp.

This is the error I get when I try to start Lampp (MySQL):

[root@RichieBox ~]# /opt/lampp/lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.7...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

Then ->
[root@RichieBox ~]# /opt/lampp/lampp status
Version: XAMPP for Linux 1.7
Apache is running.
MySQL is not running.
ProFTPD is running.

Could anybody give me a clue on where I am going wrong? Or why this is not working?

Please note:
PhpMyAdmin doesn't work either.

i had the same problem. You should try to stop mysql and kill 'mysqld' PID with -9 switch

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp stop

killall -9 mysqld

After that try to start lampp

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

I hope that will help
