I can't get a re-install to work!

Postby gssi » 17. March 2007 22:34

I recently was forced to uninstall and re-install v 1.6.0a but I can't get the Apache service to start. I have stopped my IIS service and changed the localhost port setting to 8080 in the http.conf file.

Any thoughts or guesses would be appreciated.

PS: It had been working faultlessly until my machine went into a tight loop and had to be forcibly powered down!

Did you ever fix this? I seem to have a similar problem.

Yes, I figured out that when I elected not to delete files in htdocs, I was preserving my own files AND some xampp files. After deleting all but my own files from htdocs and then redoing the install, everything came up as expected.

Hope this helps.
