Error Message 10013 - MySQL

Postby amayacm2 » 08. February 2013 22:53

Hello All,

I just tried to install XAMPP 1.7.3 on my PC (Windows Vista), but I keep getting an error message that says:

#2003 - Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10013)

I've tried researching this issue and haven't been able to figure out what the issue is. I've installed XAMPP on a different computer with same OS before and never had an issue with it up until now. Somebody, anybody... Please help! I would greatly appreciate it!

10013 - is an OS Error.

Have you checked your firewall and your free ports?

Good Luck

I was able to do a port check, and it looks like the port that MySQL is using (3306) is free. So I'm not exactly sure what would be causing the problem. I was able to install XAMPP once before with absolutely no issues, so I don't think that my current firewall settings might be an issue. :(

Its a Socket error specifically - the socket is either blocked, not present or you are using an illegal method.

Did you check your firewall, also did you try running the CP as administrator?

Good Luck
