Apache service could not start

Postby jc44 » 23. April 2008 14:56

Hi,

I've installed Xamp 16.6.6a on my XP SP2 but the apache server could not start.
- the "xamp-portcheck.exe" show me that all Xampp ports are OK.
- when i stopped the windows firewall, no more success.

Other details :
- i've installed the apache service during the installation process,
- mc affee runs on my pc.

Thanks a lot.

but the apache server could not start.

Start Apache with the batchfile and read the error message.

There is no error message : "Apache 2 is starting...". That's all, it seems to wait something

Another details :
- in my services, there are 2 Apache services
apache 2 service + apache 2.2 service. Maybe, dangerous...
- i've got the administrator rights.

Thanks.

Well, thus Apache is running now. Verify this in taskmanager.

Sorry.

From the log Apache is running, thus you must see Apache in the tasklist.

BTW:
The process name is afaik "httpd".

Ok, i've got a apache process. I obtained it with "apache_start.bat" but not throught the control panel... The control panel show me that apache service is not running... Why ? Bug ?
I want administrate my databases but i found no database with WinMySQLadmin 1.4. I saw that WinMySQLadmin 1.4 is available for Win95/98/NT/2000 but not for XP.
Is there another tool to admin databases ?

Why all these problemes with Xamp 1.6.6a ? I thought that Xamp 1.6.6a is the latest version and quite stable...

What is the best choise beetween Xamp 1.6.6a and EasyPhp 2.01b and why ?

Thanks.

Look into the Windows event log (system and applications) and read the error messages.

with WinMySQLadmin 1.4. I

Don't use this software. It's deprecated.

phpMyAdmin is part of the XAMPP package. Other admin software you can download from the MySQL homepage.

-> I have nothing in event logs. I don't understand : an apache process runs but in the windows services list i haven't any apache running service !

with WinMySQLadmin 1.4. I

Don't use this software. It's deprecated.
-> I'm agree with you.

-> OK.



Thanks a lot for your complete help. I wonder if Xamp 1.5.5 is less bugged than the 1.6.6a version. What's your opinion and what do you think of EasyPHP ?

I saw you live in Stuttgart. This evening, i'll watch the football match Munich/St-Petersburg (Franck Ribery is wunderbar !) : Are jou Bayern supporter or are you like many germans who hate Munich ?
