To get MySQL server to work in XAMPP, follow these steps:

  1. Open the XAMPP control panel.
  2. Start the Apache server by clicking the "Start" button next to it.
  3. Start the MySQL server by clicking the "Start" button next to it.
  4. If the MySQL server does not start, check if there are any conflicts with another application using port 3306 (the default port for MySQL). If there are conflicts, you can change the port by clicking on the Config button next to MySQL in the XAMPP control panel, selecting the my.ini file, and changing the port number.
  5. Once the MySQL server is started, you can access it through phpMyAdmin by clicking on the Admin button next to MySQL in the XAMPP control panel. This will open a web browser with the phpMyAdmin interface where you can manage your MySQL databases.
  6. You can also access MySQL through the command line by opening a terminal and typing the following command: mysql -u root -p. This will prompt you for the root password that you set during the XAMPP installation process.


Your MySQL server should now be up and running in XAMPP.
