Running MySQL Administrator and XAMPP Simultaneously -Tricks

This has been the issue that I’ve been trying to solve. I tried all the tutorials but nothing worked in my case. I decided to dig deeper because I will again, loath myself for not making this work. Since I am using XAMPP for my web development and Mysql Administrator for my .net development at work.. and it would be too much to access them on a separate PC or to manually stop and start the services . So this really has to work. Here we go:

First, I assume that you already changed the PORT on which MySQL will listen by default, it’s  3306. If not, you can refer to some tutorial on how to Change that port. They cannot listen to the same port so we need to change one. What I did with mine is changed xampp mysql to listen on port 3307. You can change that on the Config my.ini file. Others also change it on the php.ini file. It should look like this. You see that 3307 Port. 


Since the MySQL in  XAMPP is working, let’s leave it that way for now.

Next is to configure the MYSQL Administrator. If you already configured it the first time, we can still re configure it through Mysql Instance Config Wizard.

Reconfigure it then — this is what did the trick. Change the Service Name to anything other than MySQL.  For what I’ve noticed, everytime I uninstall the service of Mysql on Xampp, Mysql Administrator will not also work because they have the same SERVICE NAME!


Hence, it should look this way in Services list. Notice that both are already running. MySQL1 for MySQL admin and mysql for XAMPP.


Now, you can see them both running simultaneously and peacefully. 🙂  Hope this helps!



Here I go again. They say do not bury your dreams. My – I -WANT-TO -BE – A DOCTOR DREAM—

This bugs me. Early this strange but a big question.. WHY NOT? and everytime I think about it.. there’s this “BUT HOW???”

This is really..


ExecJS::ProgramError in Welcome#index – Ruby on Rails

This is my 5th day of my Ruby on rails. And early morning, I’ve been trying to find out the cure for this. And then I came across the solution.


In your /app/views/layouts/application.html.erb line 5 and 6, change the first parameter application to default. Credits to the Source.

This is going to be a happy day coding. 🙂


Ruby on Rails. Cannot connect to localhost://3000

I came across this error when I just finished the installation. I managed to start the server in cmd shell. But then, I cant seem to connect to localhost//:3000.

What did I do? This is for Windows.

  1. Go to Control Panel  – Windows Firewall – Advance Settings then Click “Inbound Rules”.Follow the screenshots below.
  2. I came to this solution because I think maybe a firewall is blocking or not allowing the access to PORT 3000.I am not sure but this is what I did in connecting MYSQL Server.

If done, restart the PC. Also check if you typed the correct Url. I think it should be localhost:3000 .

Then start the Command Prompt with Ruby and rails. Repeat the start server procedure,  >>site – cd (nameofproject) – (rails server) .


Happy Coding!



Ruby for this week.

I got tons of motivation to finish learning this language. Sounds fun. 🙂

Motivation.motivation please.

What’s inside my bag?(IT Professional’s Stuff.)

People are wondering how come I always bring such a lousy,big backpack everyday. This will be the first time in my life that I will reveal my personal stuffs. What should be inside my bag.? or who cares.

For those who are starting their careers as an IT professional, you should at least know what stuffs you should invest on to make things come in handy. First should be your BAG. Yes, it is very important to invest on a good quality backpack to accompany all your things. This is my new bag I bought on sale ..(Mackar). Mackar has a good quality features and the price is cheaper than any other brands in the market. It is also water resistant and comes with small pockets inside. I chose this style also to minimize snatcher’s attack and lessen my “praning (paranoid)moments.”

My new bag.

Let’s get inside. I took all my things out and took a photo of them.


A lil bit messy. But as you can see, almost all the stuffs that I need. From laptop to my alcohol.

  1. Laptop – isn’t it a bit scary if I don’t have a thing like this. My life would be miserable at best.
  2. USB HUB – Yes, I have this 7 port USB 2.0 hub I bought for only..hmm.I think less P500. I bought it on sale. This is really useful if I have multiple devices to plug all at the same time.
  3. Philips Fitdot MP3 Player –  I travel almost 100 km back and forth from home to my work everyday. And this comes really handy to me. Also can use for biking, rollerblading,jogging for it can be strap anywhere.
  4. ID – of all the things, this is one of the most important stuff that should be found inside your bag. Whatever happens to you, you have your personal identification.
  5. Laptop Lock Cable –  I never dreamed of losing my other half. My sister gave this to me last Christmas. Often used inside the cafe.
  6. Powerbank – Empty battery mobile phone is no longer an excuse because of this. This 20kmah powerbank keeps my devices charged even for a week.
  7. Flash / External Devices – Backing up my files should always be a priority of a software developer. Or anyone engage  in software development. This also keeps my movies, anime series, programs and other scripts.
  8. Personal LAN Cable – for me, everyone should have it. To also avoid crimping cables all the time. You should have your personal one.
  9. Mini Vacuum –  this is really, really one of the most important to me. As I hate seeing dust and bits of snacks on my keyboard. Keeps your laptop clean and neat.
  10. Cables, cables, cables – different cables of my different stuffs. Without them, my devices are dead.
  11. Mini Purse – this stores my mini flash drives to avoid having them misplaced.
  12. Flash light w/ Stun gun –  for my own protection..self defense. 🙂
  13. Mini USB LED Light –  I use this for late night the dark of course. 😛
  14. Little notebook –  I used this mainly to jot down my daily tasks and researched kali scripts.
  15. Ethyl Alcohol – keeps my hands sanitize.
  16. Mobile Phone –  This is my portal for the other people in my life.
  17. Wireless Mouse – it’s actually inside the case. Yes, you should have a wireless mouse everywhere you go.
  18. Personal Hygiene Kit – every programmer should not stink. Yes, save yourself in trouble by making yourself look good and fresh breath.

I guess this is all I can share for now. 🙂

When you think “you don’t matter.”

Maybe I am just hallucinating. Or maybe this ain’t my time. Or maybe my skills don’t matter. Maybe I should try more. Maybe I should be better.
