I did a fresh install of WAMP (v2.1) and it works excep the MySQL isn’t starting…. here:
and everytime I press “Start/Resume Service”, NOTHING happens.
I go to my.ini and put in a password.Then go to MySQL console.. type in that password and either 1. the console dissapeares or 2. I get Error 2003 “Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (10061)”
Error No. 2003: Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (or some other host)
simply means that connection is not possible for one of the following (or similar) reasons:
There is no MySQL server running at the specified host
Connection to the MySQL server is not allowed using TCP-IP. Check the ‘skip-networking’ setting in the MySQL configuration file (my.ini on Windows, my.cnf on Unix/Linux). It shall be commented out like ‘#skip-networking’. If it is not commented out, then do it and restart the MySQL server for the change to take effect.
Some networking issue prevents connection. It could be a network malconfiguration or a firewall issue. You need to allow the service mysql on windows firewall/ after you install wamp, restart ur pc. and start wamp
windows will ask is msqlnt.exe allowed to run and accept it
then its fine.
If it doesn’t work then:
Try turning off the windows firewall – if that fixes the problem, then turn it back on, and allow access to TCP/3306(default port)
- When trying to connect to a MySQL server at an ISP this error message often indicates that direct connection to MySQL has been blocked. You must then use HTTP-tunneling or SSH-tunneling to connect.
I tried going to:
and deleted the following:
auto.cnf, xxxxxxxxx.err, xxxxxxxxx.pid, ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1
But I left the ibdata1 alone as it references all local databases. I then restarted wamp and it worked like a charm.
Search for mysql-bin.index file, delete it, then restart MySQL.
This worked for me 😉
Please check the port that MySQL is using on your system. Then, change the port number of the WAMP server’s MySQL service to that number by entering it in my.ini.
If you’re running Windows, make sure to restart service and it immediately turns green.
I ran into a similar problem.
I had the exact same problem but my situation was different (I use WAMP 3.1 i.c.w. Windows 10 64-bit). Thus, the solution was different. Read below how I solved it in my situation.
First, I checked the MySQL Log. Like this:
Second, I saw errors like this:
wampmysqld64: Table 'mysql.plugin' doesn't exist
2018-08-15T14:54:37.207560Z 0 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it.
2018-08-15T14:54:37.211344Z 0 [Warning] Gtid table is not ready to be used. Table 'mysql.gtid_executed' cannot be opened.
2018-08-15T14:54:37.215551Z 0 [Warning] Failed to open optimizer cost constant tables
2018-08-15T14:54:37.216151Z 0 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't open and lock privilege tables: Table 'mysql.user' doesn't exist
Third, after interpreting the errror log I navigated to the mysql data directory.
The location of that directory on my machine was:
C:wamp64binmysqlmysql5.7.19data. This can be different on your machine. I noticed that some directories where missing. I didn’t had a “mysql” directory, though it must be there in order to work.
Fourth, I copied the “mysql” directory from a different machine to
C:wamp64binmysqlmysql5.7.19data, and restarted All Services through WAMP. That solved the problem.
A previous mysql installation may cause this problem. Go to task manager and kill the mysqld.exe process. Then restart all the services. Good luck.
This will definitely work.
BEFORE proceeding with the installation of Wampserver, you must ensure that certain elements are installed on your system, otherwise Wampserver will absolutely not run, and in addition, the installation will be faulty and you will need to remove Wampserver BEFORE installing the elements that were missing.
Uninstall wamp and download and Install Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2008, Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2012 and Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2015. Now, reinstall wamp, and it should work fine.
