Apache will not stop

Postby scranmer » 10. August 2005 11:44

First off I must say stunning job by all - XAMPP rocks!

I have just installed the latest XAMPP xampp-win32-1.4.14.zip
and although I can start both apache & mysql when I come to stop them apache just keeps on ticking.

I have compared the startup and shutdown scripts and the only difference is that my older version used
apache\bin\kill.exe /f apache.exe
I have tried this and still no sucess.

Anyone else have this problem or know a solution.

Cheers

Simon.

PS Im using WinXP Pro (with all the latest patches) on a laptop, a manual startup/shutdown and the only things I have changed are the DB root password and set ThreadsPerChild=16 in httpd.conf (also set this back but did not help)

In the last releases we use "pv.exe". You have this file and can execute it?

Wiedmann,

Thank you for the reply. I tried to run pv manualy from cmd with
apache\bin\pv.exe /? and received an error.

Solution was to redownload xampp and extract apache folder again. Now it works fine. So I will reinstall the lot.

Thanks,

Simon.
