MySQL Question

Xampp MySQL not starting - "Attempting to start MySQL service..."

I've just installed XAMPP for Windows - should be the newest version (XAMPP Control Panel v3.2.1).

Apache is running just fine on port 80 and 443, but MySQL is not starting. When I press the start button, I get this message:

Attempting to start MySQL service...

Then a window pops up and ask me if I want to allow this, which I want. But nothing happends after that. I can press as many times as I want, but with the same result.

What can I do?

Answer Source

Change the MySQL port from 3306 to 3307 or something.

Hope this helps!
