Hello Apache Friends (XAMPP),
I'm also having the same problem with installation of XAMPP 1.7.4 on Windows.
XAMPP 1.7.4 installation appears OK, but MYSQL is deactivated. If I reinstall XAMPP 1.7.3, MYSQL works fine.
I would appreciate some help getting an installation of XAMPP 1.7.4 working on Windows Vista (32-bit) SP2.
The installation is an upgrade from 1.7.3 to 1.7.4 proceeding with backing-up of the database and deinstalling of all XAMPP components and services.
The installation appeared to complete ok with no errors being reported. However, after installation there is a problem with mysql.
In a browser (Google Chrome), the XAMPP welcome screen displays ok, but the XAMPP Status screen reports that MySql is deactivated. Here is the XAMPP Status screen:
Consequently phpmyadmin displays an error screen. Here is a picture of the phpmyadmin error:
Here is a screenshot of my XAMPP Control Panel v3.0.2:
Here is a screenshot of the Netstat panel which shows mysql on port 0.0.0.0 instead of 127.0.0.1. Mysql is not present on 127.0.0.1:
Many thanks in advance for anyone who can suggest a fix.
