I am new in Ubuntu, I installed XAMPP in my Ubuntu 10.04. When I start XAMPP it says MySQL couldn't start.
Here is my terminal ouput:
$ sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.8.0...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Couldn't start MySQL!
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.
I found the answer. First completly uninstall the lampp and then reinstall it. Before uninstalling, stop the lampp using the command:
and then uninstall/remove it using the command
rm -rf /opt/lampp
then reinstall it.
