1. How to start your XAMPP services?
XAMPP control panel on OSX named manager-osx
2. Go to tab “manage server” then start the apache and mysql service.
3. If you can’t start the mysql servie, open your terminal and execute this command :
sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/mysql.server start
4. You might see ” starting mysql….. success” but Mysql database on manager-osx is still not running.
Don’t worry, it just takes a while for it to become “running”, you can just open http://localhost/phpmyadmin on your browser and you will see that it actually has been started already.
Good luck !
