XAMPP SHUTS ITSELF DOWN ALL THE TIME ?!?!

Postby bee-cc » 11. December 2008 06:24

Hi guys

We're encountering a strange problem where xampp shuts itself off through the day for some unknown reason. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Do you know why this is happening or how I can prevent if from turning off randomly?

All help is appreciated :)

Probably you are already running another web server (ex. IIS) on the same port. If you did not change the port, its due to port conflict. Other than this, you might have changed the config or php.ini to wrong settings which prevents apache to start. Good thing is to go and check the error.log file at apache/logs folder for hint.
Hope this helps :)

What exactly do you mean with XAMPP? XAMPP is just a bundle of Software. Which part is shutting down? And how is it running (as a service or manually started)?

The first part from sniper.patel you can ignore, Apache wouldn't even startup if the port is in use. The second part is very good: Check your logs of the program that shuts down. If it runs as a service, you can also check the Windows Eventlog.

If there are no clues in the .\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file - close all XAMPP components including removing the ticks in the Svc boxes in your XAMPP Control Panel.

Now go to your .\xampp installation folder and find apache_start.bat file and double click on it (right click and select Run as administrator in Vista).

This will, perhaps, give you an error message why apache will not run properly (assuming it is apache that is "shutting down all the time").
