But there is a problem:
-during installation, the wizard asked me if I would like to install Apache and MySQL as services. I choosed both. The rest of the installation went ok, but when it started the xampp console error message appeared:
"Ports 80 or 443 (SSL) already in use! Installing Apache2-2 service failed!"
"Port 3306 already in use! Installing MySQL service failed!"

and i try to change port in xampp in directory c:\xampp\apache\conf ...in this file include name contents Listen 80 and ServerName localhost:80 and i exchange this configuration with listen 8888 dan ServerName localhost:8888,oks i try restart xampp .....

Open xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf and set this two values:

Code: Select all
Listen 8888
ServerName localhost

Then open the file xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf and change this

Code: Select all
Listen 443

Code: Select all
Listen 9443

Please start Apache with the start_apache.bat in the xampp directory for testing. If an error occours, then it will be displayed in the Window. In the Control Panel you will not see detailed error messages.
