Stop all Software in XAMPP-Control Panel
Uninstall the complete XAMPP-Package
Start regedit and go to the Folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
and remove all Folders named with the Service-Names for the Servers (like Apache, MySQL or FileZilla).
Restart your Computer and install XAMPP completely new.
Now everything should work.
Okay, I followed your instructions as you outlined above. I then installed Xampp for Windows 32 1.6.7 and used only defaults as they were given. The installation came back and said that it installed successfully, and it opened the Control Panel for me. I clicked on start to start apache. The green "Running" came on, and I got excited. Then, the green "Running" notice went out. I then got sad.
I clicked on status, and everything was marked with a 0. So, I clicked on start apache again, and this time nothing happened. The status window states that Apache started [Port 80], but it doesn't show in the Control Panel that it did so.
When I enter http://localhost/
in a browser, I get the IIS default start page. My guess is that IIS is stepping on things here. We use Sharepoint here at work, so I guess I need IIS, or don't I? If so, how do I get around this if IIS is indeed the culprit and causing my greef? If not, how do I disable it?
I am using Windows XP Pro SP2, 2GB Ram, Kaspersky Internet protection, and the Windows firewall is off. I have told Kaspersky to like and work with XAMPP, and not block it.
