      It looks like XAMPP installed.

      I see some network issue, not an install problem.

      Since this can be caused by antivirus, VPN, firewall or other, it would be a guess what it is this time.

      But it’s your PC so you would know what you did to the networking.

      Installing Issue solution

      by sebtten ·

      In reply to installing issue

      It seems like there’s an issue with MySQL not starting due to port 3306 being in use by another process or application. This conflict is preventing MySQL from starting up properly. Here’s a step-by-step guide to troubleshoot and resolve the problem:

      Identify the Application Using Port 3306:

      Use the command prompt or a tool like Resource Monitor to identify which application is using port 3306.
      You can use the command netstat -ano | findstr :3306 in Command Prompt to find the application PID (Process ID) using this port.
      Resolve Port Conflict:

      If another application is using port 3306, you might consider stopping that application or configuring MySQL to use a different port.
      To change the port for MySQL, locate the my.ini or my.cnf configuration file in your XAMPP MySQL directory (c:\xamp\mysql\). Look for the port setting and change it to an available port (e.g., 3307).
      Save the file and try starting MySQL again from the XAMPP Control Panel.
      Check for Errors:

      If MySQL fails to start again, check the MySQL error logs for more specific information. Click the “Logs” button in the XAMPP Control Panel next to the MySQL module to view error logs.
      Additionally, check the Windows Event Viewer for any relevant error messages related to MySQL startup failure.
      Ensure Proper Permissions and Dependencies:

      Make sure that XAMPP has proper permissions to access its installation directory (c:\xamp\).
      Check that all necessary dependencies for MySQL and XAMPP are installed and configured correctly.
      Seek Further Assistance:

      If the issue persists after trying these steps, consider posting the entire log window content on relevant forums or seeking assistance from XAMPP or MySQL support communities for further troubleshooting help.

      Open a command prompt with administrator rights. Right-click on the Command Prompt icon and choose “Run as administrator.”

      Run the following command to find out which application is using port 3306:

      netstat -ano | find “3306”

      Note the Process ID (PID) associated with port 3306.

      Open the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc), go to the “Details” tab, and find the process with the corresponding PID.

      Once you’ve identified the process, you can decide to stop it or reconfigure it to use a different port. If it’s a MySQL instance from another installation, you may want to stop that MySQL service or change its port configuration.

      After resolving the port conflict, restart XAMPP, and MySQL should be able to start without issues.

      Run XAMPP as Administrator:

      by indeigogo ·

      In reply to installing issue

      It appears that you are encountering issues with the installation of XAMPP on your Windows system, particularly with the MySQL module. The error message indicates that port 3306, which is the default port for MySQL, is in use by an “Unable to open process.” This is preventing MySQL from starting properly, leading to the reported errors.

      To resolve this installation issue, follow these steps:

      Run XAMPP as Administrator:

      Right-click on the XAMPP shortcut or executable.
      Choose “Run as administrator” to ensure that the application runs with the necessary privileges.
      Check and Stop Conflicting Services:

      Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
      Navigate to the “Services” tab.
      Look for any services that might be using port 3306 and stop them. In this case, it seems something is preventing MySQL from accessing the required port.
      Configure MySQL to Use a Different Port:

      Open the XAMPP Control Panel.
      Click on the “Config” button next to MySQL.
      Change the MySQL port to a different number (e.g., 3307).
      Save the configuration and attempt to start MySQL again.
      Check for Software Conflicts:

      Some antivirus or security software might interfere with XAMPP. Temporarily disable such software and see if the issue persists.
      Check Error Logs:

      Click on the “Logs” button in the XAMPP Control Panel, specifically for MySQL.
      Review the error logs for more detailed information on why MySQL is failing to start.
      Review Windows Event Viewer:

      Open the Windows Event Viewer and navigate to the “Windows Logs” > “Application” section.
      Look for any events related to MySQL or XAMPP that might provide additional insights into the issue.
      By following these steps, you should be able to troubleshoot and resolve the installation issue with XAMPP on your Windows system. If the problem persists, consider seeking assistance on relevant forums or community support channels for XAMPP.

      Troubleshoot MySQL startup issues in XAMPP by identifying and stopping conflicting applications using port 3306. Check the MySQL error logs and Windows Event Viewer for detailed insights into the unexpected shutdown. Ensure XAMPP is run with administrator rights to address permission-related concerns. Consider reinstalling the MySQL component if problems persist, and seek support within the XAMPP community. Optimize XAMPP MySQL configuration for enhanced performance.
