Can't start database after Windows update


I’m new to all of this so please bare with me. My site is local(on my computer), it just stopped working like that, i checked the logs after reading through several of these threads. My son updated my computer and now mysql won’t start.

Hi @Lyfe23,

We do note see any error in the MySQL’s log, however it has no information since 2 days ago. I understand the MySQL server appears in the Bitnami Manager tool and you tried to start it without success, right?

Let’s try to start the database manually to get the errors. You will need to open the command prompt and run this command

  • Then, check if you can start MySQL
C:/YOUR_INSTALLDIR/mysql\bin\mysqld.exe --defaults-file="C:/YOUR_INSTALLDIR/mysql\my.ini"

Does it show any error?
