hope someone can help me, I installed xampp and drupal yesterday and everything went fine and I even started to modemrate my new drupal site, but today when I happily typed in http://localhost/drupal-5.7 I can'ät connect to my MySQL I get thios from drupal:"The MySQL error was: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061).
Currently, the username is mariahasselqvist and the database server is localhost."
and when I start the XAMPP control panel the apache is running but when I try to start the My SQL I get this error:
ERROR: MySQL service not started(-1)
and I can't open the phpadmin there I get the error message: #2003 - The server doesn't answer.
When I check the status in admin for xampp it says that My SWQL i deactivated and I have no idea how to activate it I can't find anywhere to do that.
So I hope someone can help me!
I run my local host on windows XP
thanks in advance!
