This is quite common and nothing to worry about.
It may be easier for you to see and hear the instructions needed to address your issue. Here is a link to a video that shows you what to do. However I am here to help you along the way or if you have any questions about what is shown in the video. Here is the link to the video:
Great, not sure if my reply was caught while you were replying to me. Here it is again :)
Ok sometimes it is in another location. What version of windows do you have?
Ok and where did you install your database folder? Sometimes people do it right on the C: drive.
On the XAMPP click on logs for the mysql app. Can you attach the long here? You would use the paper icon at the end of where you type.
Thank you. I am reading them now. You dont have a back up folder inside mysql folder? You would go to C:\xampp and look for the mysql folder there. If you dont have it, that is ok.
It may be, copy the files inside that folder and put them inside the data folder in the mysql folder.
If not, that is ok. Can you start the xampp-control app as an administrator for testing. To do this, right click on the icon for xampp-control and select run as administrator. Start apache and wait until it loaded, then start mysql. Does it start? Then shut everything down so we dont run as admin.
Yeah dont worry about it. Just try to run as admin.
Ok, it may be a firewall issue. Are you running any anti-virus programs? Have you opened the port for mysql?
Ok, press the windows button and the letter X then select command prompt and run it as administrator. In the box that comes up type;
Do you see mysql there?
That likely means that is it being blocked. You should run that command while mysql is trying to start. So hit start then go run the command right away. Still dont see it?
I am out of ideas. To be fair to you, I will opt out of this question which will open the question up to all the experts who will see it and then be able to reply to you. Another expert may have more experience with your particular problem than I do. Someone will be with you shortly. Have a great day.
