I'm using wampserver. And suddenly mysql wouldn't work. I checked curports from nirsoft and it has red highlight on it. What does it mean?How do I solve this so that I could use mysql again. I'm working on a project but I can't move on if the database won't work. enter image description here

for changing the mysql port, just change it in my.ini. Look for this line


you should check mysql log and windows log for detecting why MySQL is not working.

You can also try disabling the firewall
