I have XAMPP version 1.8.3-5. I'm a newbie and I don't understand why when I click on start servers, the MySQL servers won't start. It says stopped. When I click Configure, the port reads 3306. The only server running is ProFTPD. The Apache servers won't run, either, although when I first opened the application, it worked.
Please tell me what determines whether a server is successfully run and the steps I need to take.
