    It sounds like you need to uninstall the whole lot and start again buddy.

    So uninstall WAMP first, reboot and run CRAP CLEANER to delete traces of the WAMP installation and then I would try reinstalling or use what I am using: Web Developer Suite it's essentially a WAMP just like you have now, but it's a one-click install process with very few things you can f#ck up. It took me five minutes to have a database up and running after that.

    I haven't time to type out exact instructions for that part just now, but I hope the above helps ya out.

    maybe u have conflicting programs using TCP port 3306

    i don't know what else to suggest... coz i have never encountered problems while installing and using wamp5
    Please don't mind me. I am just posting a lot of nonsense.

    The thing about this is that it SHOULD work right out of the box. Unfortunately, it's not doing so for you. When I get home I'll download and install WAMP5 on my computer to see if perhaps there is something that you need to do to get it set up and working, but my experience is that it should work "out of the box".

    Hope this helps.

    Quick question. On the WAMP icon in the taskbar (on the computer), does the icon have a yellow color or is it white? If it is yellow, click on the icon and it should bring up the WAMP5 control panel menu. When it does, hover over "MySQL" and click on "Start Service". If that is grayed out, click on "Install Service" and that should fix it for you.

    hope this helps.

    Sorry to triple post like this, but I have just tested out WAMP5. Here are the steps you need to take in order to set up MySQL on your install. Before starting, make sure you uninstall your current install as not to conflict with these instructions.

    1. download the latest version of WAMP5 from the following link: http://www.wampserver.com/dl.php
    2. Run the setup wizard and follow the on-screen instructions.
    3. Once finished with the on-screen instructions in the setup wizard, click on the WAMP5 icon in the taskbar and click on the phpmyadmin link.
    4. login using root with no password. (Change immediatly once logged in)


    If you need any further help, let me know; but by default MySQL is installed and running. Also, you may want to look around their support forums for more info if you run into more problems.

    Hope this helps.
