Difficulties running xampp under Vista

Postby CynicalRealist » 22. February 2007 23:38

Well anyway I am not sure if this should be posted under XAMPP für Windows or Apache Friends (my lack of german skills may be the problem). But anyway I can't seem to get the apache going and I suspect its related to the firewall that comes with vista. The mysql runs fine on the other hand. The details are as follows.

When I click on the start button for the Apache on the XAMPP control panel it just does not start unlike when I click the start button for the Mysql. Now as far as the firewall goes it all ready has mysql enabled but no ports for http so I added one for http on port 80. I don't care about HTTPS or FTP or pop or anything like that so I did not add those but still apache is not working.


Now I am not a guru on firewalls or apache so if anyone can give me some suggestions on what you think the problem may be I will really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

nevermind. I got it to work. I looked at little closer at the error message when I ran the batch file and it turned out it was a problem in my http.conf. I actually swaped the one that was just recently installed with the one I was using on my XP box because on my XP box I configured it so that everything was pretty much

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
allow from 127.0.0.1

where as the one that I recently installed did not have that. So everything is OK now. Thanks for the help Wiedmann
