which guide are you referring to

i dont see how this relates to index.php giving an error?
Step 3: If installation ends successfully, start the Apache 2 with
"apache_start".bat", MySQL with "mysql_start".bat". Stop the MySQL
Server with "mysql_stop.bat". For shutdown the Apache HTTPD, only
close the Apache Command (CMD).

im now at my xampp machine now. i assume one of the test screens to check if php is working?
I should point out that those instructions are if running Apache as a service, not as a module. If running as a module, you start and stop using XAMPP Control's "Start" and "Stop" buttons.
Wiedmann wrote:No. "apache_start.bat" is for starting Apache as normal application (modul). (and apache_stop.bat for stopping)
If you have installed Apache as service you can start it with (in cmd):
net start apache
and stop it with:
net stop apache
You can also control the Apache service with the Windows service manager (as every other installed service).
With the XAMPP control panel you can start/stop Apache as service or as application (modul).
