MySQL keeps turning itself off

Recommended Posts

I just installed XAMPP Lite. When I start the control panel and then start Apache and MySQL, Apache starts, MySQL starts, and then MySQL shuts itself off.

However, even though it's off, the MySQL status button doesn't change from "Stop" to "Start". It still says "Start".

I've tried removing XAMPP and installing it again. I've rebooted several times. But nothing changes.

I don't think the error has anything to do with XAMPP, though. It's something to do with MySQL.

I had EasyPHP running before I installed XAMPP. Everything was fine for a week, until MySQL quit working. I removed the entire installation, installed EasyPHP again, removed it, installed XAMPP. Same problem.

Could there be some MySQL configuration files still sitting on my system somewhere that I need to remove?
