15:05:45 [main] Executing "c:\xampp\mysql\data"

Looks like the xampp log. "Executing "c:\xampp\mysql\data" is nonsensical---a folder can't be executed---so there may be a xampp config issue.

It suggests that you scroll through the Windows Event Viewer to see what happened to MySQL. Did you do that?

Is there anything else in the MySQL log?

Since this occurred in a WordPress installation, you may learn more in a WP forum.
