I installed Xampp on Windows 7 32-bit. When I try to start MySql in XAMPP control panel (v3.2.1) I have the following message and MySql does not start.
23:02:03 [mysql] Problem detected! 23:02:03 [mysql] Port 3306 in use by ""C:Program FilesMySQLMySQL Server 5.1binmysqld" --defaults-file="C:Program FilesMySQLMySQL Server 5.1my.ini" MySQL"! 23:02:03 [mysql] MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free! 23:02:03 [mysql] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application 23:02:03 [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port 23:02:03 [mysql] Attempting to start MySQL service...
A similar problem was reported here but there is no working answer. When I try to install with MySql disabled, the result is that I even don’t have an option even to try to run it.
I am new to Xampp and don’t know where and what to look for to solve the issue
I need to run Apache and MySql with Php.
You already have a version of mySQL installed on this machine that is using port 3306. Go into the most recent
my.ini file and change the port to
3307. Restart the mySQL service and see if it comes up.
You also need to change port 3306 to 3307 in xamppphpphp.ini
