Application Errors in Event log and Apache Error Log

Postby Fredoniaopen » 10. October 2011 04:45

I am getting the following Error in the Application Event Viewer.

Faulting application httpd.exe, version 2.2.17.0, time stamp 0x4cbbe9e8, faulting module php5ts.dll, version 5.3.5.0, time stamp 0x4d26013e, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0000c5c6, process id 0xfa8, application start time 0x01cc86fc6c520bdb.

Within 3 seconds there is an error in the Apache Error Log.
Parent: child process exited with status 255 -- Restarting.

In most cases there are no other details with the errors, but they are occurring upwards of 1000 times a day. I have looked at all the other forum posts but have not yet found the answer. Any direction would be appreciated.

That's OK but there could be a different reply depending on the versions now as things have changed over the past several versions.

Try copying the php5ts.dll and php_mysql.dll found in the \xampp\php folder to the \xampp\apache\bin folder then try and restart Apache and MySQL.

This has worked for some who had this issue.

The error can be caused by several things so it will be trial and error.

These search results may help save you some time.

Good luck. :)

I don't think there is a definitive solution but a different install method could fix it, has for many.

Instead of using the installer version try these instructions to install using an archive version:
