[SOLVED] Wamp Server Error [Local Server – 2 of 3 services running]


I am new to wamp servers and trying to install wampServer 3.1.0 on my windows 10 machine .

Somehow it is not installed properly and is having configuration error .

At present “Wamp server is still in orange state and is throwing the error”

2 of 3 services running

As of my understanding either of Apache,MySQl orPHP is not working .
On further investigation I found that Apache is ok.
But on running mysql.exe(C:\wamp64\bin\mysql\mysql5.7.19\bin) it is throwing :

ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’

which lands me to SO-32519474 ,
I tried following the steps ,but it looks good to me in my case .
On further searching I find that wampmysqld64 is stopped in the services.
when I am trying to restart it I am getting the error
enter image description here

I am stuck up here and have no further clue how to get it fixed

Any help is highly appreciated.


I got to this SOI=35670755 and executed this command

mysqld –initialize

inside (C:\wamp64\bin\mysql\mysql5.7.19\bin)

this fixed my issue.

If in case you still have issues refer to this post

mysqld –initialize

may not be a great solution ,its kind of patch work.
It leads to issues with username and password.
