How to change mysql port in Xampp Server

To change the port successfully, i had to change the port number in following files in the mentioned manner.

You can change the port number to 3308 from 3306 in \xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini file in a couple of places.

There is also a couple of default MySQL port settings in the \xampp\php\php.ini file that would also need changing.

Save the files and restart Apache and MySQL to test.

Cheers !!!!!!!!!
