How do I install XAMPP?

XAMPP for Windows exists in three different flavors:

Probably the easiest way to install XAMPP.

For purists: XAMPP as ordinary ZIP archive.

For purists with low bandwidth: XAMPP as 7zip archive.

Note: If you extract the files, there can be false-positives virus warnings.

Using the installer:

The XAMPP control panel for start/stop Apache, MySQL, FileZilla & Mercury or install these server as services.

Installing from ZIP

Unzip the zip archives into the folder of your choice. XAMPP is extracting to the subdirectory "C:\xampp" below the selected target directory. Now start the file "setup_xampp.bat", to adjust the XAMPP configuration to your system.

If you choose a root directory "C:\" as target, you must not start "setup_xampp.bat".

Like with the installer version, you can now use the "XAMPP Control Panel" for additional tasks.

Each Bitnami stack includes a control script that lets you easily stop, start and restart servers.

The script is located at /opt/bitnami/ Call it without any arguments to restart all services:

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ start

Or use it to restart a specific service only by passing the service name as argument - for example 'mysql':

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart mysql

Your first two commands weren't run as root so that is expected behaviour. You need to be root to stop/start mysql.


sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start

should work. Indeed it does, for me:

kojan:~> sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart [sudo] password for chris: Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld. Starting MySQL database server: mysqld. Checking for corrupt, not cleanly closed and upgrade needing tables..

I used restart rather than start, since it was already running, but the effect is the same. Are you sure you entered your password correctly? :) Have you edited your sudo config at all which would stop this working?

This one..

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql - root -p start

The arguments are wrong. an init.d script only takes start or stop or restart - just one word telling it what to do. You cannot give it multiple arguments as you were trying to do.

Anyway, the short answer is the one you actually got to work, is the recommended way. service is...

This section gives a general overview of starting the MySQL server. The following sections provide more specific information for starting the MySQL server from the command line or as a Windows service.

The information here applies primarily if you installed MySQL using the Noinstall version, or if you wish to configure and test MySQL manually rather than with the GUI tools.

The MySQL server will automatically start after using the MySQL Installer, and the MySQL Notifier GUI can be used to start/stop/restart at any time.

The examples in these sections assume that MySQL is installed under the default location of C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7. Adjust the path names shown in the examples if you have MySQL installed in a different location.

Clients have two options. They can use TCP/IP, or they can use a named pipe if the server supports named-pipe...

There doesn't appear to be a GUI-based way of doing this unless you're joined to a domain - at least not one I could find anywhere - so I did a bit more digging and I've found an answer that works for our sitaution.

I didn't understand what the string representation meant in the knowledge base article, but doing a bit of digging led me to discover that it's SDDL syntax. Further digging led me to this article by Alun Jones which explains how to get the security descriptor for a service and what each bit means. MS KB914392 has more details.

To append to the service's existing security descriptor, use sc sdshow "Service Name" to get the existing descriptor. If this is a plain old .NET Windows Service - as is the case with ours - the security descriptor should look something like this:

In this tutorial we will learn, how to install MySQL Server 5.6 on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 . In our previous post, we have installed MySQL Server 5.6 on CentOS 6.x/RHEL 7.x.

In CentOS 7/ RHEL 7 , now MariaDB is introduced as a defualt database. Still many Organisations/Company would like to continue with MySQL. Whereas System Admin who earlier worked on MySQL can easily work on MariaDB. MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database management system.

MariaDB’s lead developer is Michael “Monty” Widenius, the founder of MySQL and Monty Program AB. He had previously sold his company, MySQL AB, to Sun Microsystems for US$1 billion. MariaDB is named after Monty’s younger daughter, Maria. (Reference taken from Wikipedia)

Install MySQL Server 5.6 on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7

Follow the given below steps to install MySQL Server 5.6 .
You must be login with root user in system

Download the Yum Repo package of MySQL Server 5.6

In this tutorial we will cover how to start, stop and restart your Apache web server and MySQL db on Ubuntu. Since most Linux servers do not have a graphical user interface installed we will do the steps in a terminal.

In this tutorial I am working with Ubuntu 11.04 Server. If you are running Apache on your Ubuntu desktop these steps will work for you as well.


To Start Apache:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

To Stop Apache:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop

To Restart Apache:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache restart


To Start MySQL:

sudo start mysql


sudo service mysql start


(Note: Older Method)

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start

To Stop MySQL:

sudo stop mysql


sudo service mysql stop

So... likely I'm an idiot, but I'm stuck. I just set up a CentOS 7 on Digial Ocean and I can't seem to get the MariaDB/MySQL server running.

Some output

[root@hostname ~]# yum list installed |grep maria mariadb.x86_64 1:5.5.37-1.el7_0 @updates mariadb-libs.x86_64 1:5.5.37-1.el7_0 @updates mariadb-server.x86_64 1:5.5.37-1.el7_0 @updates

So it's installed, can we at least see the client?

[root@hostname ~]# which mysql /bin/mysql

Let's try and start the server, just for fun

[root@hostname ~]# service mysqld start Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mysqld.service Failed to issue method call: Unit mysqld.service failed to load: No such file or directory. [root@hostname ~]# mysqld -bash: mysqld: command not found [root@hostname ~]# mysql.server start -bash: mysql.server: command not found [root@hostname ~]#

And this is where I get lost. Looking at what is actually installed, there is no server/daemon
