Apache didn't installed

Postby Beata » 31. August 2006 15:25

Hello,

I am new in Forum
I am new with XAMPP and I am beginner for PHP

Please help me.

I have just downloaded XAMPP 1.5.3 installer exe.
I have installed but Apache failed to install
What I have to do?

I use Windows XP with Service Pack 2

Somewhere I have read that Xampp isn't available with Service Pack 2.

If you get port is already in use or Apache won't start with Windows XP SP2 it usually means IIS is installed and running on port 80.

Click on xampp/xampp-portcheck.exe and if you see something like inetserv or innetsrv info then that is IIS.

To overcome this you should uninstall all IIS and it's components from the Windows Control Panel. Then reboot and try and install or start XAMPP again.

Skype on port 80 is another reason XAMPP may not start. This can also be deactivated or a confuguration change in Skype to have it watch on another port.

I have read that documents should be saved in directory htdocs.
Should I save here all website, which is on my hard disk?

Yes you can use htdocs for your web site.
I suggest you use a directory under htdocs to hold your web site files so that the default XAMPP Welcome Page and its contents remain intact:
xampp/htdocs/yourwebsite/yourwebsitefiles

You would then use http://localhost/yourwebsite/index.html in your browser to see it.

Some official XAMPP reading here:

Look for Basic Questions

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#1168
Question 2: Where should I place my web content?

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/faq-xampp-windows.html
The official XAMPP for Windows FAQ

xampp/readme_en.txt

Or you can always post your questions here and some knowlegeable person will try and answer them for you.
Good Luck. :)

OK,

I have created a folder 'audrone_serv" in my htdocs folder
and moved there one file index.php to test it

Now, as I understand, I should start Apache
I clicked in Apache Control Panel, and Start Apache,
checked options in Settings too, but it seems didnt' start

Go to http://localhost/audrone_serv/index.php
and it can't be found

How to start Apache?

You can double click on xampp/apache_start.bat and paste here if you get an error message.

My preferred method is to start Apache and all the other modules as a Service.
You may be able to following the instruction in this post - Running XAMPP as a service:
http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopi ... 3731#83731

You must restart your computer after installing Apache and its modules as a Service in the XAMPP Control Panel. You may an icon in the System Tray for the XAMPP Control Panel after rebooting.

If not create a shortcut and copy it to your Desktop or some other place of convenience, for ease of use.
