Besides not telling what distro you have. (like the LQ FAQ readme instructs)
Do you know how your distro fires up MySQL?
Every distro have their own a particular way.
Can you start up MySQL standalone?

Check out HowToForge on proftpd. Instead of Xampp

On youtube

And goodluck on your configs!!! (No hair on left on your head) :]


A guru here may give better advice though.
