So I've installed XAMPP a few times and been perfectly happy with it. This time however I seem to be in that 'no start page' issue that many others seem to suffer from. The first time I installed (in a wrong directory) apache started but mysql didn't. This time mysql starts but apache didn't.
I'm not sure what exactly the switch is about but I've been trouble shooting and it looks like the problem is this computer had some sort of server turned on from the previous owner I guess.
I've done some googling and found this old thread which appears to be a similar issue. The problem is this computer was given to me so I'm not sure how to undo whatever was done.
This is my localhost page
This is my XAMPP control panel
This is my ISS page
So i tried to google disable and found this article which was helpful in finding the ISS control panel but the instructions seem to be for some sort of config that isn't me.
