I'm having issues starting the MySql service under XAMPP 1.8.3:
MySql log error:
2013-11-19 09:10:54 5224 InnoDB: Attempted to open a previously opened tablespace. Previous tablespace db_binder_htl/tbladdress uses space ID: 1 at filepath: .\db_binder_htl\tbladdress.ibd. Cannot open tablespace mysql/innodb_table_stats which uses space ID: 1 at filepath: .\mysql\innodb_table_stats.ibd
InnoDB: Error: could not open single-table tablespace file .\mysql\innodb_table_stats.ibd
InnoDB: We do not continue the crash recovery, because the table may become
InnoDB: corrupt if we cannot apply the log records in the InnoDB log to it.
InnoDB: To fix the problem and start mysqld:
InnoDB: 1) If there is a permission problem in the file and mysqld cannot
InnoDB: open the file, you should modify the permissions.
InnoDB: 2) If the table is not needed, or you can restore it from a backup,
InnoDB: then you can remove the .ibd file, and InnoDB will do a normal
InnoDB: crash recovery and ignore that table.
InnoDB: 3) If the file system or the disk is broken, and you cannot remove
InnoDB: the .ibd file, you can set innodb_force_recovery > 0 in my.cnf
InnoDB: and force InnoDB to continue crash recovery here.
I had this issue before and solved it by moving the files within xampp\mysql\data folder and letting MySQL rebuild them, but now it is back.
I need a permanent solution. Any suggestions?
