Windows XAMPP - Mysql instance failing to start.

Hi EE,

What's the reason behind the following error (see attached) I am getting mixed results when I google it, I am current the local admin on my PC and when I change port numbers in the .ini file (attached) xampp just tries to pick random ones.

Attached is the log file as well no clues I can see here.

Any assistance is welcome.


Thank you.

click on start - search for XAMPP, right click and select (run as administrator). you can then click on the services checkbox to install the MySQL and Apache services to run always at startup (images are for illustration only)
