Response to: Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use

This has been exactly my problem too and I can't figure out what to do either. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please. Thanks.

    out of frustration, i deleted the mysql user account and started a fresh one. this seemed to work for me. i didn't get the error anymore.

    make sure you follow the installation procedure by marc liyanage closely the next time around.

    i also got rid of third party gui apps that i had installed to make the process easier. it didn't.

    so, i'm not sure exactly which action got rid of the error, but it did.

      You have to do forced shutdown ie go to administrative console and go services utility and stop the mysql services.
