Hi Sean Michael,
“are you starting xampp-control threw a shortcut on your desktop…”
Yes, I have.
“did you install apache as a service”
No, I have not. Apache come with Installer
“what method did you use for re~installing, I used 7-zip, this makes updating/installing different.”
I double clicked xampp-win32-1.6.0a-installer from 30MB
to reinstalling, no used of 7-zip or winzip.
“Also you said that you used the uninstaller, when reinstalling did you ake sure all files where removed during re installation, often files are left during the un install process, making it a not so clean install.”
I used Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs to remove XAMPP. How do I make sure all the files are remove?
“Is your Apache error log telling you anything useful? /xampp/apache/log/error log file”
I opened error.log with notepad and I see nothing, blank.
“Shoot, maybe it was there in fromt of my face all along but maybe not, in your first post you state on line 42, ServerRoot "/xampp/apache", this is not correct, a valid Serverroot is something like ServerRoot "C:/xampp/apache", you might need to run "C:/xampp/setup_xampp.bat" to update these paths.”
I double clicked setup_xampp.bat and it said invalid. I can’t do anything. I have trying edit the ServerRoot “C:/xampp/apache” but still it does not work.
I’m frustrated and I did something that work.
Uninstall from control panel and double clicked xampp-win32-1.6.0a-installer and I changed the folder C:\Localhost
instead of default folder C:\Program Files
. IT WORKS! Why is that C:\Program Files does not work? How do I clean slate XAMPP files in C:\Program Files?
I just looking in C:/Localhost/xampp/apache/conf/httpd and it is ServerRoot "C:/Localhost/xampp/apache"
But in C:/Program Files/xampp/apache/conf/httpd and it is ServerRoot "/xampp/apache" – I can’t possible change when uninstall and install again.
Is it possible that folder C:\Program Files ever use again? How?
