Apache does start with errors. MySQL does not start.

Hoi,

Apache does start, but with errors. MySQL does not start.

I have XAMPP 1.6.2 on Windows 98 SE (dutch). I tried the installer on C:/program files/xampp and C:/xampp. Now I am using the Selfextracting 7-ZIP archive in C:/xampp. All of them give the same result.

:arrow: When I start Apache using apache_start.bat it's output is
Code: Select all
Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden
Bitte erst bei einem gewollten Shutdown schliessen
Please close this command only for Shutdown
Apache 2 is starting ...

I can access //localhost/xampp/ so Apache and PHP are working, :D
but C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log displays some errors:
Code: Select all
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\\xampp\\php\\ext\\php_imap.dll' - Een apparaat dat op het systeem is aangesloten, werkt niet.\r\n in Unknown on line 0

:arrow: When I start the XAMPP Control Panel Application, it displays an warning about a directory mismatch, but I don't know where to correct it. I can start Apache by clicking on the 'Start' button with the following output:
Code: Select all

Apache is started, but there is not green label with Running in it. The 'Start'-button doesn't change to 'Stop' as shown in the [url=http://images.apachefriends.org/images/1161.jpg]installation manual
[/url].
If I click on 'Status' it displays the following: state=0 but thread=lc :?

After all this I can't get MySQL started using the control panel, mysql_start.bat, or WinMySQLadmin. It could be that this is because Apache isn't working properly. Let me know if you need to know more. :roll:

:?: Does anyone know what might be wrong, or needs to be checked?

Thanks for any reply,

I have XAMPP 1.6.2 on Windows 98 SE (dutch).

Here is what I would do. Use the php_info() function to find out which Configuration File (php.ini) is actually in use to configure PHP. Then open up that particular "php.ini" file with a good text editor and look for the strings "file", "path" and "dir" (case-insensitive).

You will come across some irrelevant matches, but on my php.ini file, I found several wrong paths and directories. I changed them and that fixed a problem that I had with MySQL loading properly.

I also manually inspected "c:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/bin/my.cnf" (a config file) with my text editor to make sure that the directories and paths are set properly. In my case, the slashes for the directories are "forward slashes" (/), so I have settings like so:

Code: Select all
   # The MySQL server
   [mysqld]
   basedir="C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql"
   tmpdir="C:/Program Files/xampp/tmp"
   datadir="C:/Program Files/xampp/mysql/data"

Those are 2 suggestions that might help. I should add that I also use forward slashes "/", not the "" in the path settings in my php.ini file, and it works as I need right now. HTH.

Hi Eric,

I tried Apache again 2 weaks ago, but it won't start anymore. http://localhost/ gives no responce. :(
Without it I can't see what init-file PHP is using, can I?

PHP.exe works fine as I can see setup_xampp.bat runing install.php.
I can call PHPinfo() with it.
Code: Select all
C:\XAMPP\php\php.exe -n -d output_buffering=0 phpinfo.php > phpinfo.txt

Result. phpinfo.txt line 11+12:
Code: Select all
Configuration File (php.ini) Path => 
Loaded Configuration File => (none)

I also tried it with the installer, but it gave the same results.

I tried it on an other PC with Windows XP, and it works fine. I think it is a Windows 98 problem.

Udo
