ok, I royally screwed it up!

Recommended Posts

I decided to completely kill apache, php and mysql to start over, as I had restructured my whole webserver, adding several subdomains, and stuff. I was wanting to have several seperate vhosts holding my subdomains, each being php websites, all on the same computer, and got apache working totally fine, nothing wrong with it. The reason i killed everything was anything php was totally screwy, only linux users for some reason could view the pages of php, lol. New installs of php webpage setups would display information that I had done months ago, and \'apparently\' deleted.

 

On this install of stuff, everything seems to be going wrong with mysql. It just doesnt want to work, no matter which guide I follow, it moans about the service already being installed, it refuses to start, and doesn\'t want to do anything.

 

How can I start again, I wanna rip mysql completely out of the system, seeing as uninstall doesnt appear to work properly.

 

What I am aiming for, is around ten subdomains along with the main domain, to be hosted by apache, possibly using php in about 5 of these subdomains (and one in the main).

 

Apache is no problem, php seems fine, mysql is really annoying me now, and I am gonna go to bed. Hope some of you guys can help me out!

Although you have uninstalled mysql I think it is still registered as a service that is why the re-install is failing. Click Start>programs?Admin tools>Services and have a look in there for the mysql service. There is a DOS command for unregistering services, can\'t think of off hand, sorry. But I think this is the area you should focus on.
