I have XAMPP installed on my MAC (Mac book pro, 10.5.8 ) and it was working like a charm until last night
I started getting this message when trying to start the MySql server from XAMPP
Another Mysql server is running!
I checked the activity Monitor and I see this task running mysqld (owner = _mysql).
I tried quitting or force quitting but the task comes right back.... seemingly something in the OS keeps starting this!
how do I turn that off?
the only thing different that I did lately was to repair permissions on my system... other than that I did not install anything or do anyhthing out of the ordinary
any ideas on how I can turn this off???
