removing services

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

removing services

Postby nally » 13. June 2006 23:49

Hi All,

I've been installing and uninstalling versions of XAMPP for a while, but somewhere along the line I must have screwed up as I have the Apache2 and mysql services in place, but the associated directory is gone.

My Windows admin isn't up to snuff on this... how do I get rid of those (now inoperable) services? They are preventing me from installing any XAMPPs now.

thanks!

You must delete the old services:
- open the Windows command prompt ("cmd.exe")
- execute the three commands:
Code: Select all
sc delete apache2
sc delete mysql
sc delete "filezilla server"

Now the three services, if they was installed, are removed and you can install the new XAMPP version.
