My SQL started but then in a few seconds stopped and I got this I got this error message. PM [mysql] Status change detected: running PM [mysql] Status change detected: stopped PM [mysql] Error: My SQL shutdown unexpectedly.
PM [mysql] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, PM [mysql] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
" Now I can not get the site to come up at all, as I can’t get My SQl running. PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]  No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. I think maybe I still need to update My SQL and that will fix things.. I'd also like to get rid of that extra pesky controller if I can since it seems to be non standard. Can I just delete all copies of XAMMP and My SQL and those Controllers so I can start fresh and then just plug my htdocs back into the xampp folder and the data folder back into the mysql folder?
in lock_may_be_available() (line 167 of C:\xampp\htdocs\includes\lock.inc). Or would I be better off just updating My SQL or XAMPP? Can I just plug that htdocs and the data folder into any fresh install of any XAMPP stack and expect it to work?
But it did not work, so I thought "I need to update My Sql and Drupal anyway, and learn how, so maybe if I did that then this would take care of whatever the problem was." (By the way, I'm not a computer techie but trying to learn to build Drupal web sites so I could use simple explanations. I noticed My SQL was running in the Controller I thought was an extra or second controller and turned off My SQL in that controller.
) So I found where I keep xampp data in mysql, and my htdocs files in xampp so I could back them up by copying them to another place. Well, My SQL also went off in my first or what I thought was my primary controller.
Once done, you can uninstall the mysql package that you had installed to C:\TEMP.
Any questions or problems, message me or post back!
do you have any idea or any way to upgrade mysql in xampp ?
Following is the step by step process of upgrading php in your xampp server. If your server get restarted successfully then your server php version is upgraded.
Before trying these steps please take complete backup of your code and database alognwith xampp because any small mistake can lead to the corruption of your regular XAMPP.1) Download PHP : If you are using xampp ofcourse you are using windows operating system. You can check the status of your php version by URL
Make sure to stop mysql, but there is no need to uninstall the service.
Step 1: Download the new version of My SQL install version or zip (install version preferred since it is considerably smaller) Step 2: Install My SQL to C:\TEMP. Step 4: Go to C:\TEMP, look for installation and copy the following folders "bin, include, lib, share, support-files". Once copied, go to your xampp folder, rename mysql folder to mysql_old.
