MySQL doesn't start [solved]

Postby claus_01 » 02. June 2020 08:00

Hi all,

today, I downloaded & installed XAMPP 7.4.6-0 on Ubuntu 20.04. At first, every thing ran without a problem. Then I installed the latest WordPress version, and all of a sudden I couldn't access PHPMyAdmin anymore, presumably due to a password conflict. So I installed XAMPP anew, but now MySQL doesn't start. I am getting the following error messages:

Code: Select all
MySQL said: Documentation
Cannot connect: invalid settings.
mysqli::real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
mysqli::real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

The directory /opt/lampp/mysql only contains a subfolder /scripts, containing What can I do to solve this issue? Usually, installing from scratch should work. I already searched this forum, but couldn't find an answer to this specific problem.



P. S.: All of a sudden the problems went away; I don't know, how.
