Apache service if stopped shuts down computer [Resolved]

Postby DonC » 18. August 2012 04:24

I have xampp 1.8 with apache,mysql and firezilla started as a service on my xp home sp3 build 2600.
I was trying to test stopping and starting servers (my sql and firezilla ok) when apache shut down the computer when I
stopped the service. I did this 4 times, once i got a blue screen. (control panel and services)
event viewer does not seem to have any clues, In the safe mode I can disable it .

Any help I would appreciate

How exactly did you try to shut down Apache?

I tried to stop service on the control panel first,which abruptly shut the computer off. I went to services next and tried to
stop it there and same thing happened.
So now I went into safe mode and disabled both apache and my sql.
I uninstalled 1.8 and installed 1.74 and thats working fine so I`ll leave it alone.
Thank You Jon

If you are curious, you might look in your Windows system event log to see if anything got logged before the kaboom.

Mostly, I'm glad you are working again
