i meet this issue . how to fix this?

this is my issue.

Windows could not start the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) on Local Computer.
For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service,
contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5.

@Jayakumars Sir,

error code 5 indicates that there is some permission issue over the .mdf and .ldf files and so Access is denied

The SQL Server database engine service account must have permissions to read/write for the .mdf and .ldf files in which they are located.

So solve this, Provide Full control permission for both .mdf and .ldf files for Users group.

More information



Hope that helps.

Thanks & Regards,
