Apache won't load any page

Postby butterperson » 09. February 2009 20:09

Hello, I'm new to this board so please forgive my likely stupid questions.

I just installed XAMPP on my thumb drive and started Apache and MySQL via the XAMPP control panel. Navigating to 127.0.0.1 produces nothing: the browser spins endlessly and reports "waiting for 127.0.0.1". What am I missing?

Thanks in advance

Tell us exactly how you did that, which might have a bearing on your issues, ie. what installation instructions did you follow?

Hi Izzy. Thanks for responding.

I unpacked the zip into the top level of the drive and, as instructed, did NOT run setup_xampp.bat. Then I started xampp-control, started Apache and tried to browse to 127.0.0.1.

Netstat tells me that Apache is listening on port 80. When I browse to it, Netstat tells me that the connection is ESTABLISHED. Never the less, the browser spins and reports that it is "waiting for 127.0.0.1".

Additional information:
Each time I start Apache the error log reports
[warn] pid file . . ./xampp/apache/logs/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?

I am stopping Apache via the xampp-control each time and the status reports that it has stopped.

I believe that we are in widely different time zones so I will continue to research my machine. Any insight you may offer will be much appreciated.

A firewall/virus scan can be the problem.

Try adding "Win32DisableAcceptEx" to your "httpd.conf".
