I installed xampp and when I try to start the service, MySQL doesn't start only apache and proFTPD
and I was getting this error
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): Connection refused
After some search I found that there is an already running MySQL service other than xampp's
so currently everytime I start my xampp I have to stop the MySQL service first using
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
is there a way I can remove this service completely so xampp can be started without my having to stop the service first before starting xampp?
