XAMPP MySQL suddenly stopped working for no visible reason

I’ve been searching since last night. I could not find anyone else having my problem.

I start MySQL, wait about 3-5 seconds. It shuts down unexpectedly.

I checked the error log but nothing abnormal. I tried to copy MySQL backup folder to data folder and it solved the problem but my tables are removed so not a good solution. What should I do ?!

Method 1

To fix and retrieve your db data you can try the following steps:

  1. Copy mysqldata folder to: mysqldata_copy
  2. Delet all files (apart from folders!) in mysqldata folder.
  3. Run MariaDB/MySQL via XAMPP
  4. The files would be self-generated in our folder.
  5. Copy file: mysqldata_kopia/ibdata1 and paste it into mysqldata folder (it will override the file).
  6. Restart MariaDB/MySQL via XAMPP.
  7. Done.
