Apache died after stop

Postby AchtungAffen » 14. October 2009 19:57

First: I'm using windows 2003 R2 64b version.

I've been toying with Apache for ages, but never tried xampp. So, there was a new server upgrade at work and the guy who did it (3rd party) decided to install xampp for our webserver needs.

Well, today I needed to create an alias to a directory outside the server root. I added the alias line (on apaches httpd.conf) and then opened apachemonitor and stopped the apache service from there. After that apache never started up again.

I checked config syntax and it's ok. Apache's error log says:

Code: Select all
Starting the Apache2.2 service
The Apache2.2 service is running.
 Can't locate ModPerl/Util.pm in @INC (@INC contains: E:/xampp/perl/lib E:/xampp/perl/site/lib . E:/xampp/apache) at E:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/startup.pl line 1.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at E:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/startup.pl line 1.\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 1.\n
[Wed Oct 14 15:32:30 2009] [error] Can't load Perl file: E:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/startup.pl for server localhost:80, exiting...


So I decided to comment the line where Perl is loaded (in apaches httpd.conf). After that apache started, but MySQL didn't work.

Can I recover this? Should I just uninstall everything and start from scratch again? What did I do wrong to break this thing?

See if this fix helps with this error after putting your conf file back to the default.

BTW the Alias directives are best placed in the \apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf file where the rest are located and will serve as an example when adding your own Aliases.
