2. XAMPP Control Panel Version 3.0.2
4. Please try and be as detailed as possible about your issue.
Hi, I have been trying to solve this problem all day. I can't seem to figure it out. Looked on google, tried a lot but nothing works. I am having problems with xampp. I just started having some interest in programming and chapter I am at is php. Now I started by looking on youtube how to start a localhost and somehow i ended up with this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBo7-Wy0bdM
I soooo much regret I followed all the steps on the video
Did almost everything what was done on the video but it didn't work, so I tried to undo almost everything that I had done.
After I found out about xampp I tried to install it. I had problems with IIS before but seemed to solved that, but another problem has occured and I cannot find a good way to get apache to work.
The problem that I have is:
! I cannot execute any .php commands.!!
I can show html, but .php documents won't work.
on my XAMPP Control Panel v3.0.2 I have this error:
18:24:36 [main] Initializing main
18:24:36 [main] Windows version: 5.1 (build 2600) - Service Pack 3

18:24:36 [mysql] Possible problem detected: Port 3306 in use by "mysqld.exe"!
18:24:36 [main] Starting check-timer
as you can see: apache is telling me the ports are already used. And also there is a problem with mysqld.exe.
I am really exhausted of trying to solve this problem. I have installed and uninstalled xampp so many times. I am looking on the internet and see so many things but I can't find my solution.
I don't have skype installed and I also removed IIS from my computer.
it is such nice weather outside and I have been sitting inside all day trying to solve this problem and I haven't even made any tiny progress. Can someone give me a step by step manual or refer me to a link with a really clear problem solver to my problem so I can get on with my php lessons?
