Hi, my first post, and up to now been using XAMPP (version 1.7.3) on my XP machine no problem.
Just installed XAMPP 1.7.7 on my Windows 7 machine and both Apache nor MySql will start from the control panel (version2.5).
They both say:
ERROR: Apache service not started [-1]
ERROR: MySql service not started [-1]
they are both set as "manual" services in my control panel/administrative tools (as they are on my XP machine). Also i can start both Apache and MySql from the services without a problem.
XAMPP install is : c:\xampp
and when i first open the control panel it says: Status check OK
I dont have ISS running, i dont think, because i cannot even find it in the Services list. (in any case MySql should still come on i believe if this was the cause)
I didnt incur any problems with installation(all done automatically).
Could someone please help me with this problem. it's driving me crazy.
with best regards,
