Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Starting Apache

Postby Howard Kaikow » 12. July 2009 20:13

A few minutes ago, I unpacked XAMPP LIte.
I then ran apache_start.bat and got te message

Apache 2 is starting ...


How long is this supposed to take?
Nothing seems to be happening.

System is Windows 2000.

Apache is already started. The Window must stay open until you shut down Apache with the apache_start.bat. If you do not want this window, use the control panel or install Apache as a service.

I see the same issue with mysql_start.bat.

Each time I reboot, would I have to rerun apache_start.bat and mysql_start.bat?

Yes. Or you install the services. Then both programs will start during boot (before you log in).

Thanx.

I see that I need to run apache_installservice.bat and mysql_install service.bat.

Do I close the current windows before I do that?
Or do I first reboot and install the srvices, ten reboot again?

I figured this one out.
Done.
