I installed XAMPP today and I have also installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86).
Operating System: Windows XP Version 5.1
xampp version: 1.8.1
When I try to run Apache I get the error below;
19:43:30 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
19:43:30 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
19:43:30 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
19:43:30 [Apache] Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
19:43:30 [Apache] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
Service Name: Apache2.4
Main Port: 80
SSL Port: 443
When I click "Netstat" in the CP I get the following info re Ports;
(There is other port info, but that seems the most relevant).
All I see at the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" is an empty / blank file.
- How can I get Apache running?
- If I need to change the Service Settings port info, can you please tell me what port numbers I should put in there?
- If I need to uninstall another program, can you please tell me which program I need to uninstall?
Many thanks for your help!
I got the info below from Windows Event Viewer, not sure if it helps;
The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> apache.exe: Could not open configuration file C:/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf: The system cannot find the path specified.
