a little closer to getting it to run. the za pop up tells me Apache is trying to act as a server but no go. when i click on apache start same message busy and status shows not running. i guess i should run apache.bat again. i'll try and see what the message is.thanks so far so good .. inch by inch.

just thought i'd have u check my vhosts.conf file to see if its correct:
Code: Select all
NameVirtualHost *:80


<VirtualHost *:80>

ServerName ec.localhost
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/ec/test"
ErrorLog "C:/xampp/htdocs/ec/test/logs/error.log"
CustomLog "C:/xampp/htdocs/ec/test/logs/error.log" common
</VirtualHost>


<VirtualHost *:80>

ServerName reg.localhost
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/reg/7"
ErrorLog "C:/xampp/htdocs/reg/7/logs/error.log"
CustomLog "C:/xampp/htdocs/reg/7/logs/error.log" common
</VirtualHost>

any errors? ran apache.start.bat it said couldn't start/load apache. but at the same time the z/a pop up appeared??

Disable (better uninstall) ZA.

First make sure no other software is listening on Port 80 or 443. To do so, start the xampp-portcheck.exe in the xampp folder. If there is no free written behind Apache (HTTP) and Apache (HTTPS), then you must shutdown this programs. Then run the apache_start.bat in the xampp folder. If you get an error message, post it here.

thanks glitzie.. i ran port check and ports 80,81,443 were free but mysql had a path to the .exe file?? does that mean its interfering?
i ran start apache.bat and again z/a when i had it loaded it's pop up said starting apache service but the command line said service couldn't be started.

but the command line said service couldn't be started.

What's the exact error message? (can you copy 'n paste the shell output?)

If you have a problem with Apache, you must not do anything with MySQL.

how should i copy the command line?

Normally this happens, if something is wrong with the configured log files.
