I have Windows XP Professional 2002 Service Pack 2. I download WAMP first but couldn't get Apache or Mysql starting, after reading around. I decided to install XAMPP 1.7.2.
The installation worked fine. When I try and start apache from the control panel it says busy, apache started but it doesn't seem to be working. Mysql starts for about a second and then stops.
I have tried the sc delete apache2.2. and sc delete mysql and it says service deleted but still the same error.
I try and start from the batch files and it says mysql started but apache does not, it says apache not started. I have checked the log file and i get this error :
- Code: Select all
[crit](os 10106) The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialised. : alloc_listener:falied to get socket for (null)
Syntax Error on line 47 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/httpd/conf:
Listen setup failed
Line 47 is : Listen 80 so i changed it to Listen localhost:80 and the error changes the null above to localhost.
I've played around with the service list , stopped lots of user started services but still no change. And the port check returns as all ports free and i don't have skype or anything and windows firewall is off
Any prompt advice would highly appreciated.
And oh, the computer is NOT connected to the internet as I want to run the servers for private development and testing. Thanks again
