Why this MySQL…not running Comes?

There may be several causes for MySQL’s inactivity. The following typical problems and procedures for troubleshooting them can assist you in locating and fixing the issue:

Configuration Issues: Examine the MySQL configuration file (often my.cnf or my.ini) for typographical mistakes or misconfigured settings. Observe configuration options for bind-address, port, and datadir.

Port Conflicts: Verify that no conflicts with ports exist. MySQL utilizes port 3306 by default. MySQL might not start at all if this port is being used by another program. Changes to the port can be made in the MySQL configuration file.

Permissions: Check that the ownership and permissions of the MySQL data directory and its contents are proper. The rights required for the MySQL user to access the data directory should be granted.

Database Corruption: The data files for MySQL can be corrupted. In certain situations, you may have to try to fix the MySQL tables or restore from a backup.

These are the main reason of showing this issue in MySql.
