MySQL starting and stopping (Win 7 64bit) 1.7.7 [SOLVED]

Postby krazyjakee » 10. October 2011 15:18

I am on Windows 7 64 bit.
XAMPP 1.7.7

MySQL starts and stops again.
When run directly from explorer it says "there was an error and it has to close".
PHPMyAdmin says
Code: Select all
"#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)"

I have removed and reinstalled xampp entirely.
Allowed through the firewall and turned the firewall off.
Turned off UAC.
Emptied windows host file.
Restarted.
My computer is malware free.

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!?!?!?

We require your XAMPP version to provide the correct version support - please read the following Announcements.

Try uncommenting this line in the \xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini file
Code: Select all
#bind-address = "127.0.0.1"
So it looks like this
Code: Select all
bind-address = "127.0.0.1"
Save the file and restart Apache and MySQL.

Use a text editor only.

Please let me know if that helps.

Thanks. :)

Initially it didn't work. I removed all xampp files, reinstalled, changed this setting and now it works.
Thanks VERY much Sharley, I can now continue developing in peace!
I googled this to death, glad I came here.

Thanks again.
