I'm hoping someone can help me out with this problem. I have seen several other people having the same problem in this forum, but I have not seen any straight answers.
I am running Mac OSX 10.9.3 and XAMPP 1.8.3-4
It did not happen before, however, now I cannot start the MySQL Database. ProFTPD and Apache are running, however, MySQL will not start. I do not get any errors. If I look at the Application Log all I see is:
"Starting MySQL Database..."
When I try to start the server the status goes from "stopped" to "starting" and after about 20 seconds goes back to "stopped."
I have not changed any permissions or made any other changes to my installation. I had this same problem last week and was able to get it started with a reboot, but now that isn't working.
Someone please help and be as detailed as possible!
