wamp orange icon mysql not working

I cannot use WAMP properly as MySQL service is not starting neither when I click on wampserver/mysql/StartResume Service.

Please note:

  1. WampServer icon is orange
  2. I can use MySQL console and see all of my databases
  3. PhpMyAdmin works when I browse on http://localhost/phpmyadmin
  4. innodb_additional_mem_pool_size is not in my.ini
  5. Mysql.log is emptystrong text
  6. innodb_force_recovery = 1 does not change anything

What else shall I try?

I am new to WAMP.

Here is my.ini:

# Example MySQL config file for medium systems.
# This is for a system with little memory (32M - 64M) where MySQL plays
# an important part, or systems up to 128M where MySQL is used together with
# other programs (such as a web server)
# You can copy this file to
# /etc/my.cnf to set global options,
# mysql-data-dir/my.cnf to set server-specific options (in this
# installation this directory is C:\mysql\data) or
# ~/.my.cnf to set user-specific options.
# In this file, you can use all long options that a program supports.
# If you want to know which options a program supports, run the program
# with the "--help" option.

# The following options will be passed to all MySQL clients
#password   = your_password

# Don't listen on a TCP/IP port at all. This can be a security enhancement,
# if all processes that need to connect to mysqld run on the same host.

# Replication Slave (comment out master section to use this)

# New for MySQL 5.6 if no slave

# To configure this host as a replication slave, you can choose between
# two methods :
# 1) Use the CHANGE MASTER TO command (fully described in our manual) -
#    the syntax is:
#    MASTER_USER=<user>, MASTER_PASSWORD=<password> ;
#    where you replace <host>, <user>, <password> by quoted strings and
#    <port> by the master's port number (3306 by default).
#    Example:
#    MASTER_USER='joe', MASTER_PASSWORD='secret';
# OR
# 2) Set the variables below. However, in case you choose this method, then
#    start replication for the first time (even unsuccessfully, for example
#    if you mistyped the password in master-password and the slave fails to
#    connect), the slave will create a master.info file, and any later
#    change in this file to the variables' values below will be ignored and
#    overridden by the content of the master.info file, unless you shutdown
#    the slave server, delete master.info and restart the slaver server.
#    For that reason, you may want to leave the lines below untouched
#    (commented) and instead use CHANGE MASTER TO (see above)
# required unique id between 2 and 2^32 - 1
# (and different from the master)
# defaults to 2 if master-host is set
# but will not function as a slave if omitted
#server-id       = 2
# The replication master for this slave - required
#master-host     =   <hostname>
# The username the slave will use for authentication when connecting
# to the master - required
#master-user     =   <username>
# The password the slave will authenticate with when connecting to
# the master - required
#master-password =   <password>
# The port the master is listening on.
# optional - defaults to 3306
#master-port     =  <port>
# binary logging - not required for slaves, but recommended

# Point the following paths to different dedicated disks
#tmpdir     = /tmp/     
#log-update     = /path-to-dedicated-directory/hostname

WampServer - MySQL service doesn't start, MySQL can be installed as part of some other tools/apps. If that is the case they normally set the service name to MYSQL and set it to start automatically so it is probably running before you get to start WAMPServer and therefore blocking port 3306. Hi, I have a problem, that when select MySQL v8.0.18 from the WAMP MySQL Version Menu it goes through the process of stopping the service and restarting, however when i look at the executable path for the wampmysqld64 service it still points to my previous MySQL v5.7.23 version.

In my case the problem was other multiple instances of MySQL. I have installed MySQL Workbench from Oracle. Turns out I could only have one MySQL service running at a time.
