Windows update crashes localhost: XPDO issue?

I’m not sure about what’s happened, but on localhost, I can launch the XAMPP dashboard, but launching any MODX site (front or back end) leads to a completely blank page. The Apache error log seems to show things hanging on the XPDO class file, line 412, which is addConnection().

PHP 7.1.4
MODX 2.7.3 or MODX 3 alpha

Is anyone else seeing this?

Scratch that. It’s not xPDO. I can’t run PhpMyAdmin because it can’t make a connection to the DB.

#2002 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. — The server is not responding (or the local server's socket is not correctly configured).

Nothing to do with MODX. The MySQL server just stopped launching automatically. Still don’t know why.
