  • WAMP5 is an outdated version of Wamp Server 2. Why don’t you try that instead? Make sure that WAMP5 is uninstalled prior to the latest Wamp Server installation.

    I tried Wamp latest version WampServer2.1e but after installation mysql service did not start & it gives error:
    “Could not start the wampmysqld service could not start on local computer
    Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly”

    plz helpe me to resolve this problem

    Thnx & regards

    open my.ini and find
    Change to:

    I’m using XAMPP, you might want to try that. With this I never had any problems at all.
