What happens when you press the Start button for Mysql in the XAMPP control panel?

Have you changed anything  for MySQL (passwords, config files, etc.)?    Check whether this helps

It happens once to me the same when I install Skype in my system... Somehow the ports were changed and then I modified ini files of php and it worked out well.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I looked my XAMPP last night and it said MySQL was deactivated.  But it wasn't.  Everything including phpMyAdmin and other code was still running.  Note that phpMyAdmin won't run if MySQL isn't running.  I think there is a problem with the status detection code.
