I'm using win xp home, service pack II.
Apache and mysql do not run (no green button in Xampp Control Panel(XCP) for both when hitting start buttons).
I use Trend Micro firewall but deactivated the firewall. I also deactivated win xp firewall. i'm using xampp 1.6.8.
When i check some item (i forgot which one, I guess the one in windows services wich shows me the xampp control panel service) i get the next message: xampp service stopped, specific service fault 32 (0X20) , go to help " http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp
". But this page redirects me to a general microsoft technical helpdesk, offcourse
In the windows services i cannot find the apache server.
When I check apache (clicking apache.exe) I get the message:
syntax error on line 42: syntax error "c:/program files/apache/conf/httpd.conf": serverroot must be a valid directory
(serverrroot is "/xampp/apache", changing it in "/Program Files/xampp/apache" did not help me).
Somewhere (after clicking apache start bat file ?) I also got the message in a dos-like window: apache 2.2 ervice stopped with specific service fault 1 (0x1).
xampp port check shows me that all necessary ports are free (except for port used by filezilla wich doe work).
On internet I find very few info about the problem.http://localhost
is not reachable in IE: DNS error or.... (I forgot the complete message).
i didn't check yet the problem with mysql (probably the same cause).
Anyone an idea ? Thank you.
I admit I forgot to check if IIS is active. But I guess it's not because I have win xp HOME.
xampp used to work in the past without any problem on completely the same system & software, apart from the trend micro firewall wich I bought after a virus invasion
. But as mentioned, I deactivated this firewall...
I tried to lower the Internet Explorer security level with no results. In fact it allways returns to the security level "normal" after my change...
