Hi, I'm new to the world of XAMPP, so I apologize if this has been covered previously or if I'm just asking a dumb question.
I am setting up a new server, and I am having problems starting both Apache 2.2 and mySQL. I am running XP Home Edition.
I can check the "svc" boxes next to "Apache" and "MySql," and I can also click the "Start" button, but when I do so, I get the "Stopped" status instead of the "Running" status. Here is what I have done so far:
Apache2.2: I have clicked the SCM button, right-clicked on Apache2.2, and chosen "Start." This gives me the message "Windows could not start the Apache2.2 on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer toservice-specific error code 1."
I thought this might be a port issue, but when I ran xampp-portcheck, it says that all ports (80, 81, 443) are "free."
MySQL: I get the same problem with MySql, but a different error message. Specifically, when I try to start MySql, I get "Could not start the MySQL service on Local Computer. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."
Also, according to xampp-portcheck, port 3306 is free.
If anyone could shed some light on what is going on or tell me a solution (or even a workaround) to these issues, I would appreciate it. Thanks for your help.
