I have a problem about Apache starting and then it stops 1-2 seconds after.
In error.log i find this:

[Fri Apr 23 11:58:41 2010] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Fri Apr 23 11:58:41 2010] [notice] Digest: done

[Fri Apr 23 11:58:42 2010] [notice] Parent: Forcing termination of child process 36

And I use the newest version, 1.7.3, but I can't find out how to fix this error.
Any help?

Stop all, deinstall all, reboot

It might just be because you have an application running in the background like a remote desktop client or some windows/linux service that requires access to the net via ports 80 or 443 too. I just thought it was worth adding because someone might find this happening to them. simple solution, run the "port-check" that comes installed with the XAMPP control panel. That will tell you if there is a program blocking it, and what program it is and its location.
