Do you know how to get it to use 2 services? So far, I've found a site that gave instructions on using netstat to find out what services are assigned to what port and I got this info:
C:\Documents and Settings\XP Pro>netstat -ano | findstr "80"
TCP 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 1532
C:\Documents and Settings\XP Pro>TaskList /FI "PID eq 1532" /FO LIST /V
Image Name: apache.exe
Session Name: Console
Mem Usage: 12,168 K
User Name: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
CPU Time: 0:00:02
Window Title: N/A
When I saw that it said apache was on that port, I brought up my XAMPP control panel again and sure enough, it says that both Apache and MySQL are running. (It didn't say that yesterday when I brought it up.) However, only MySQL is running as a service. When I checked the Service box by Apache, I get an error message that it's already running. Frankly, I don't know what all of that means. It's occurred to me that I'm running XP Pro, so maybe I already have a version of Apache? I typed in 127.0.0.1 and got the XAMPP welcome page. I checked the status and everything is activated except the SMTP Service.
I guess my questions now are:
1. What's the difference between something running as a service or simply just running? Do I care? LOL
2. Is there a problem with me being on XP Pro? If so, what do I need to do about it?
