I have used xampp for a while but suddenly yesterday it died.Whe i try to enter localhost my browser gives me waiting for...and in 1-2 minutes connection timed out.I said ok lets reinstall.I have removed absolutely everything and tried again - the same problem.Reinstall again this time not as a service...same.Changed the package again the same problem.

But when i put a simple server it worked fine.
Where is the problem with apache.

I use Sp2.Removed firewall,skype and so on...

have you in the last view days the "Microsoft Update Service" running ?.

check everthing if not any programm running that can block the xampp.

open a doxbox and go manuel to the xampp folder.
start there the " apache_start.bat ", if any errors, you now see it.

yes i have the updater runing those few days but.. in the moment it isnt...
and i saw where the error might be.When i open portcheck the port 443 is in use so the https service is in use not the http so i type
Code: Select all

and this time the result is not waiting but...connected to localhost
the wors thing is that actually i cant enter again.How to run http not https ??

Help pls as fast as possible because i should run it in less than 10 minutes :(

which XAMPP Version you use ?
if you use XAMPP befor Version 1.5.0 you can find a line in your httpd.conf
with # Win32DisableAcceptEx
delete the " # ", save the file, restart Apache.

If you use from 1.5.0 you must add this
in the last line of you httpd.conf, save file, restart apache

testing and report...

hhmm... normaly with this funktion resolv performance problems with xampp.

- what say the processlist ? (cpu occupancy rate by the two apache.exe) ?
- is TMP folder empty or filled with a plethora of files ?

one of the apaches is consuming 40,000 k and the other just 64.The htdocs is full with the original xampp docu + one ipb forum ;)
