Xampp not working

Postby dancingmongoose » 21. June 2012 08:35

Sorry if this has been asked a billion times, its just I cant get it to work.

For some strange reason, I tried to open up Xampp the other day using Xampp_start.exe. It came up with a message about a socket. This is the message:

Now, Ive tried finding out if any other programs are using the port. There aren't any. Somewhere I also found advice to stop xampp before running it, and it apparently works. It just says that it cant find appache\logs\httpd.pid. Google can only give me so much, and I need this for assignments

Well for one thing - you can't have spaces in the XAMPP path and expect it to work.

"\Term 2\"

That PROBABLY is not what caused your issue, but it is the 'Looming Tower' on that install.

The OS 10048 is telling you its not actually a XAMPP error, but an OS problem - likely another application/service is using that port (443) the HTTPS default.

Are you using the 'lite/usb' install or the 'regular' version?

Use the Control Panel 'netstat' button to see if port 443 is free or what application/service is using it. Skype frequently uses it.

Good Luck

Its the lite version, it was working before in the same path, and I cant see any program using port 443

Is Apache set as a service?

What happens if you launch the Control Panel?

Is it possible a firewall or AV is blocking 443?

Does it work on a different machine?

Same thing when running as a service, firewall is allowing it. Does the same thing when set as a service, it wasnt before. And it does work at school, but then it had some other error. Havent tried on other computers at home but I would assume it works on them. Ill try them and see if they work
EDIT: Yes it works on the PC, just not my laptop.

I'm going to make a "WAG" (Wild Ass Guess)

Maybe the required MS Windows C++ 2008 libraries are not installed on the laptop.
