help with running apache needed

Postby tul » 02. June 2009 01:57

hi

i couldn't find an answer, and the problem is killing me

im doing everything like in faq and readme, got message that server is running, but it's not working via browser, im on vista
whats interesting is that both apache and mysql runs, but the port check shows ports open
so the apache is running, and not working via browser, but localhost:81 shows a control panel anyway (this post is used in portchecker)
any solutions? thanks in advance

localhost:81 means you have edited a configuration somewhere.

xampp-portcheck.exe should show port 80 and port 443 as being free or in Vista it may show SYSTEM

http://localhost should work if Apache is showing running in the XAMPP Control Panel - xampp-control.exe

Try http://127.0.0.1 if Apache is running but http://localhost shows nothing.

look, it shows SYSTEM for 81, and mysql, but free for 80 and 433

both localhost and ip adress are not working

and localhost:81 doesn't show 'It works!' but xampp control panel

and it's completly freshly unpacked program, nothing have been altered

Port 81 is WebDAV and port 3306 is MySQL and both would appear to be installed as a Service in Vista - SYSTEM.

If you have Apache running then port 80/443 should not be free.
and localhost:81 doesn't show 'It works!' but xampp control panel
What is this xampp control panel that you see?

Check in the XAMPP Control Panel (xampp-control.exe) that Apache is showing a green running indication.

Also make sure that your firewall is not blocking you and also that in Vista you are logged in as an administrator and that UAC and IIS (inetserv) are both disabled.

BTW what version of XAMPP have you installed?
