Can't start MySQL Database server on version 7.2.9.0

Postby smalhi321 » 12. September 2018 10:51

Hi, i just installed XAMPP for Mac and i'm not sure how to configure it properly, I can't start the MySQL database and whenever I open phpMyAdmin in localhost, the following error comes up

******************************************
Error
MySQL said: Documentation

Cannot connect: invalid settings.
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

******************************************

Can anyone help me out here please?

Thanks :)

This error usually occurs, when you already have ANOTHER mysql server running. Dont ask me for a fix, i dont know your PC. Look for MySQL installations etc.
