[R] XAMPP unable to start in Windows 7 Enterprise

Postby cronosmachine » 29. June 2011 04:19

I realized I'm not be able to the service Apache & MySQL on XAMPP control panel.
I'm Administrator privilege domain and local computer it self.
I'm also tried to run the compatibility mode as Windows XP SP3.
But still unable to run. Some website told me to check the IIS installed.
According to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725762.aspx and i'm also checking at windows feature (appwiz.cpl) is not installed.
I tested using original ZIP package XAMPP from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html also unable to start.

Anyone counter this issue too?

1. Try and start Apache using C:\xampp\apache_start.bat file and see if it gives a clue message why it can't start.

2. Read the C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log file also for clues at about the date and time you last tried to start Apache.

Problem solved.
The path doesn't recognized because of the space in windows. Original is under user profile document.
There contain dot (.) in the path.

Best put on c:\xampp

And there is security/firewall pop-up allow the service within private, public network.
