MySQL start problems WAMPP (Xampp)

Several students had a problem with their Xampp. MySQL would not start. After some googling we found a thread on Stackoverflow with this workaround:

  • delete ibdata1
Whether this is sound advice or not I don't know. However MySQL was able to run. But I suspect that the file held information about all tables, so perhaps a repair of the entire database would be a good idea.
