MySQL is already runing

Postby jwvh » 31. December 2012 06:51

Installed XAMPP 1.8.1 on Kubuntu 12.10 but MySQL won't start.

Found out that two different mysqld processes are running: one owned by "mysql" started by init, and another owned by me (user) started by akonadiserver, the resident PIM (Personal Information Management) service.

The dependencies on the installed MySQL 5.5.28 package go pretty deep so uninstalling or disabling it in order to run XAMPP doesn't look like a good option.

Question: Can XAMPP be configured to use the installed MySQL package?

Of course, it would have to work without interfering with the other MySQL users. Would I be better off building a LAMPP from current debian packages? [Apache 2.2.22, PHP 5.4.6, others?]

Thanks,

Yes - 'don't start MySQL'
Depending on what you need, you can start and stop Lampp components separately.

Of course, it would have to work without interfering with the other MySQL users.


Normally you will create new database users for each new script or application.

Good Luck
:)
