In my case, I did two things:
  1. moved xampp/mysql/backup files into xampp/mysql/data
  2. RUN XAMPP as Administrator
It worked for me :)

Hiyah,

I've run into the same problem as the aaalston. I'm a complete beginner when it comes to this sought of stuff. How do I go about moving xampp from one location to another and how do I RUN XAMPP as Administrator? Thanks.
