MySQL won't start on other device

  • | 613 points

    Hello there,

    Let me start with thanking you for this fantastic tool!

    I just moved from WAMP to Laragon last week. Main reason was because of the portability. I want to sync my Laragon folder between my desktop and my laptop through a cloud service (similar to Dropbox).

    I have installed the full version of Laragon on my desktop. This works like a charm. I put the entire Laragon folder on my cloud drive.
    Then on my laptop, I synced the folder and started Laragon. Apache works, but MySQL is throwing an error. See logs below:

    What is going wrong here? I tried renaming the data/ folder. It worked then, but that won't give me my databases ;)

    I'm assuming some directory/configuration mismatch?

    Thanks in advance,

    @matsn0w the same error was reported here:

    Seams an odd fix to add two config items to the my.ini, start MySQL, reboot and revert them, but maybe worth a try.

    @matsn0w : Database transactions are complicated to achieve ACID. Therefore you need to stop MySQL before syncing.

Looks like your connection to Laragon was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
