Getting legacy project running

  • | 1084 points

    My first trial with Laragon so I set up on an old PC to test a legacy project that uses mysql driver rather than mysqli or PDO.
    PC is running Vista.

    I installed Laragon 2.2 and added php 5.6 but when I start up I get :

    Service MySQL can not start. Reason:

    2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [Note] C:\laragon\bin\mysql\mariadb-10.2.3-win32\bin\mysqld (mysqld 10.2.3-MariaDB-log) starting as process 1856 ...
    2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [ERROR] Incompatible header in messagefile 'C:\xampp\mysql\share\english\errmsg.sys'. Probably from another version of MariaDB
    2018-07-04 17:57:38 3100 [ERROR] Aborting

    But xampp is not started and was not started at all on this run of the PC. (I don't have xampp set to auto start.) No rogue services are shown in Task manager. I don't have a database installed yet but that shouldn't make it fail.
    Apache is running OK in Laragon.
    Any ideas?

    I also now tried installing myslq v5.7 but get:

    mysqld.exe - Entry Point Not Found
    The procedure entry point TryAcquireSRWLockExclusive could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

    Maybe I should just try on my Win7 PC
