You can ignore this message in the XAMPP Control Panel as it is hard coded to port 80 - http://localhost:1066 should be the URI now and you would have to add the port number to all requests in your browser from now on.entropicsinkhole wrote:...the port will switch back to port 80 (in the config file I changed it to 1066), with the message of 'Apache starte [Port 80] in the Xampp control panel.
If it happens again try starting it with apache_start.bat file and read the message why it can't start.entropicsinkhole wrote:At this time, it acts as if the service has not started at all (there is only a 'Start' button beside Apache service in the Xampp control panel). I have to stop the service via Admin Tools > Services and then restart it from the Xampp control panel. Why is it doing that and how can I stop it?
No need to restart the service only the Apache server either by clicking on the Apache Stop then on the Start buttons in the XAMPP Control Panel or by executing xampp_restart.exe in the xampp folder or by running the apache_stop.bat file and then the apache_start.bat file, all in the xampp installation folder - the above is in order of preference.entropicsinkhole wrote:Thanks! I use Apache with my webmail (squirrelmail) and need to restart the service whenever I make changes to the php.ini file.
