I am trying to install XAMPP on my Windows 10 machine.
I have read your article How to install and configure XAMPP on Windows 10 .
Here is my problem. After installing and changing (the Bitnami version), I was told by Microsoft to “take ownership” to change the my.ini file. Which I did. Now I can run Apache and MySQL, but when try to download and use apps like Drupal and Wordpress, it says MySQL cannot connect because “the local Machine is actively using it”. I tried the “admin” button and this is what I got:
MySQL said: Documentation
#2002 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
— The server is not responding (or the local server’s socket is not correctly configured).
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Any ideas how I can fix the problem?
