hi there,

I'm having a problem with mysql, php and phpmyadmin

1. MySQL will not start as a Server Service, on Windows XP - when installing goes through process and tells me it cannot start as a service, and then tells me mysqld.exe will close, is there anything I can do to rectify this problem.

2. PHP is installed and when you test it, it should show you the Introduction Page, instead it gives you 'index of phpinfo' - which is parent directory ' IT WORKS' and phpinfo.txt '<? php phpinfo (); ?>

3. PHPMyAdmin is installed and when tested shows me a blank page

4. Have Apache 2.2.16 installed and it is working right.

Could someone please assist me in getting all 4 aspects up and running

Thanks, Neil

Did you install all packages separately, or do you use WAMP or XAMPP ?
