Apache Won't Run - Windows 7 64bit

Postby garl » 25. January 2011 21:53

This is my first time using XAMPP, but it's required to use for my PHP course. My laptop is using Windows 7 Professional 64bit (freshly reformatted), and I extracted xampp-win32-1.7.3.zip to C:\xampp. I used the default settings during setup. In the Control Panel, I check Apache and MySQL, but when I press start, it says "Apache service started" but does not change to running. The same thing happens to MySQL. Any help would be appreciated!

Also, I don't use Skype.

I unchecked the Svc boxes and now both are running. In class, we had to check the boxes. What's the difference?

The boxes register the checked components as Windows Services, so that they will start with your windows.

Thanks a lot! I wonder why it doesn't want to start up with Windows.

Well, you use the zip version.
Have you executed the setup_xampp.bat file after unzipping?
Windows Services can only be used with the correct paths (by default that should already be setted to c:\xampp, but maybe you don't have c:\xampp but c:\xampp\xampp that isn't clear in your description).
Executing the setup_xampp.bat file is a good idea for setting a default timezone for PHP too.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit test notebook XAMPP is running very well with Windows Services.

Yeah, everything's in the default directory and I executed the setup file. Ah well, it works fine as is. (:
