Use external copy of MySql

Postby NiffStipples » 09. March 2016 13:05

Hey guys,

i just wanted to ask if it's possible to use an external copy of mysql and tell the xampp controll panel where it is located so that i'm able to start/stop the service within the panel?

Thanks for any help, i didn't found anything regarding this topic here in the forum :/

Short answer: no.
The control panel is not able to start a foreign MySQL Server.

best wishes,

Anyway, you can use your own MySQL Installation instead of the Xampp MySQL Installation, even if you cannot start/stop your own MySQL installation via Xampp Cotrol Panel.
