MySQL Service detected with wrong path XAMPP

If you are noticing Error messages in your stating that :

xampp-error

MySQL Service detected with wrong path ” and NOT able to load your phpMyAdmin Tool with error stating “#1045 – Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ (using password: NO)” as shown below :

phpmyadmin-error

Then here is the proper Solution.

SOLUTION :

The only reason phpMyAdmin is not starting is because, another instance of MySQL is installed in your System and it may, OR may NOT be active in Services OR your web-server viz. XAMPP, for my instance is taking the path from that installed directory.

If so, then what you are left with is, UNINSTALLING the other MySQL Installation Completely from System. Double check the left over files in the system e.g.

arrow_right      C:\ProgramData\MySQL

- Restart your Web Server.

- Clear your browser’s cache.

And you are good to go with your phpMyAdmin LIVE again.
