You must restart Apache.
Thanks for the advice - I am away from the PC that has xampp install on it. I will have to try tomorrow morning.
Well I rebooted the PC and I still get the libmodule error I described above. I have checked with portcheck and Apache HTTP is still shown as Port 80 and HTTPS is still shown as 443. The change I made in httpd.conf (following advice in this forum) is shown below. I commented out the ssl line:
# Secure (SSL/TLS) connections
# Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf
I have also downloaded and installed xampp on another PC that has Win XP (unlike this one which has win 2000) on it.
This time, after install all seems to be OK in that both apache and mysql services are said to be running. However, if I click on the Admin button next to Apache I get the same error as above - a stream of error messages every 2-3 seconds saying that there is a lib module error. The dialogue says it is from "WINMysqlAdmin 1.4". I then have to kill all the processes in connection with the control panel before I can use the PC again. (A lot of traffic light icons appear in the systray and have to be killed individually?)
Am I doing something wrong by clicking on the admin button next to mysql? This is very frustrating as I have been messing about for two days now just trying to get to a position where I can view my website on a local PC.
I feel a bit stupid!! Everyone else seems to find this software dead easy to use - but not me. I am not very experienced in this sort of software but pretty useful around computers generally. I run a 5 PC home network of mixed linux and Windows PCs, oh and 3 websites so can't be that bad but this has got me very confused <g>.
EDIT: sorry should have added that when using win xp I can get the xampp for windows page by clicking on the Admin button opposite apache. It is the admin button next to mysql that cause the error messages. In win 2000 I still can't start apache properly. If I click to use the service and then click start, it says under status that the service has started, but the Admin button stays greyed out?
