MySQL server 5.5 error, can not windows service


The main cause for this is that the MySQL Services is already installed and started on your server prior to the configuration by MySQL. Removing the installed instances and reset it will help to get rid of this issue.

Please follow the below procedure:

1. Go to Start then All Programs > MySQL > MySQL Server 5.x > MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard.

2. Click on Next and select option “Remove Instance” and finish the process.

3. Start the MySQL Server Instance Configuration again, and select the Configure Instance with Standard Configuration this time and go through the setup again.

This should get your MySQL configured again.
