XAMPP doesnt start properly

Postby neuspadrin » 27. August 2007 05:06

XAMPP seems to not be starting up the Apache and mySQL when i tell it to. It ran fine until today where it suddenly stopped working. I ran the port check and it said all my ports were free to be used (when they wernt loaded) and then I tried running, they say they start but when i attempt to access localhost it times out after trying for a good few minutes. I checked my firewall, everything is set on the program list control, i tried turning off the firewall, still problems.

Try adding this line to the end of your xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file:
Win32DisableAcceptEx

Try and restart Apache again after you have saved the edited file.

I had a similar issue once and added the above line which fixed it for me.

Take a look at the new DeskTopXampp launch control posted by ridgewood:

The DeskTopXampp launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe)
is available here:
http://zedfiles.com/DTX/

I highly recommend DTX.

This might help:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.3/mod/mp ... leacceptex

From "The Apache Directives Quick Reference"
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.3/mod/qu ... rence.html

Or the full directives list:
