I'm using the XAMPP Controls panel to start the various aspects of XAMPP. Apache starts immediately; FTP runs just fine; however, MySQL will not start and gives the error message:
"Starting MySQL... ERROR! Manager of pid-file quit without updating file."
I've seen some "sort of" solutions with Terminal commands. I'd like to keep things simple for myself by not using Terminal to do anything (novice). Is there some problem with the installation or the settings on my MacPro running OS X 10.5.6 and 2 Gb of 800 MHz RAM.
