Very Common Problem: Solution

I've noticed that many people are posting messages about not being able to start Apache. Generally the symptom is that Apache starts, but then shuts down right away.

Before you do anything else. Download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package. You can get it here: ... layLang=en

This is the same fix posted here: ... 722#112722

And a direct download link, for those who don't want to mess with all the MS page linking rubbish, can be found in the next post to the one above, here: ... 725#112725

Thanks for posting it again but as a new member perhaps a search of this forum first might have saved you the effort.

BTW, this is only a last resort fix as there are many simple reasons Apache won't start and there are many remedies that have been posted multiple times on these forums that a search first might reveal.
