MySQL blocked by Firewall!

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

MySQL blocked by Firewall!

Postby ayushchd » 01. September 2010 21:46

Hi all,

I recently started getting this error on xampp which says MySQL is not running or is blocked by a Firewall.

I re installed xampp and firewall asked me if I wanted to allow the Apache Server and the MySQL server, I allowed them.

Now, when I start xampp, I get the same error. The Control Panel shows Xampp as running. I have read all over the place and haven't found a solution. Please help!

Its just the Windows Firewall. And the problem persists even if I disable Windows Firewall. Apache runs perfectly. The only issue is with MySQL!

What version of XAMPP?

Are you getting this error on localhost or when you access the server from a different machine?

in xampp/mysql/data/ there is the mysql.err file, why don't you paste the last few instance sets (they are separated by blank lines) into your reply, and put the code tags around them?

Good Luck
:)
