Mysql connection error on xampp

Hi, I keep receving this error on xampp: "Error: MySQL shutdown unexpectedly. This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method".

I tried to create a new data folder with the old ibdata file, which helped me with the connection to Mysql, but I had my database deleted as result of that, so I'd better get another solution this time.

Here comes the entire error:

    As Xampp is a software-package, including a mySQL (which is an Oracle product!) database... posting your question in an Microsoft forum, might not bring you a helpful answer...

    and your posted "error message" does NOT contain any error, from that text I would expect that the mySQL engine is running fine (but maybe your are missing your database)

    from my personal experience, move your ibdata file to a secure folder, delete all user databases in your mySQL, re-create that one database, shutdown the service/engine, replace the new ibdata with the old, restart the service and hope it come up fine...

    (If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you)
