Apache won't start

Postby fuadm » 01. June 2010 00:29

I just recently installed XAMPP, everything seems to be working fine .. i.e. MySQL, FileZilla, Mercury but Apache doesn't work

It does work for a second and then stops.

Sometimes I get the following error

busy ...
WARNING: terminating worker thread 0

I have read some posts but and I have tried a few different things such re-installing, checking if ports are free (btw, port 80 is not free.. it says its being used by Apache)

Tried using the install and uninstall BAT files under the Apache directory but still no luck.. Anyways, please help!

Did you have an earlier, separate installation of apache?

No.. this is the first time I installed this.. I was thinking of switching to wamp but I heard that xampp is easier
anyways... I am working on it and hoping to be helped along the way

Hi

You should look in the apache error log, it will give more detailed info.

C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log


Why doesn't localhost/xampp exist?

it should be in c:\xampp\htdocs\xampp. That's where the XAMPP has all the links and info pages.

Ok figured it out...
thank you though. ..

Asp.net was working.. also IIS was working which was conflicting with Apache . . I had to disable it and it works now
