Apache stops automatically

Postby hhhlga89 » 27. October 2012 18:33

Hello, I installed xamp 1.8.1 and when I went to start Apache in the control panel, I pressed start and 2 seconds later it stops running. The control panel says this:

1:24:18 PM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
1:24:18 PM [Apache] Status change detected: running
1:24:19 PM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
1:24:19 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
1:24:19 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
1:24:19 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
1:24:19 PM [Apache] Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
1:24:19 PM [Apache] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

I am, however, able to start Mysql just fine...can anyone please tell me how I can fix this problem? I tried searching for the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file, but I could not find it. Thank you, for any help.

Could you post the entire control panel log

Also, do you have the dependencies installed like: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=5582

That is your issue. As is says, Apache will not start unless you free up that port or make Apache listen on a different port. System usually means a Windows Service is using that port. Make sure you do not have IIS or IIS Components like World Wide Publishing service running.
