I used to work with XAMPP to build PHP applications. Once I tried Zend engine and uninstalled it. After that, MySQL in XAMPP is not working. It is giving "Terminating worker thread 1" error.
When I check ports,
MySQL has status Service: MySQL_ZendServer51.
Pleas help me how to reassign it back to XAMPP? I have reinstalled XAMPP several times. But no use.
First you should delete the old mysql service.
Assuming you have Vista or Windows 7:
cmd.exein the search field and hit Ctrl+Alt+Enter. This will start the command line as
sc.exe delete MySQL_ZendServer51to remove the service.
And make sure you don't have to server running (which could be possible, that Zend installed it's own mysql but for some reason didn't removed it?)
