xampp apache will not start

Postby 123help » 21. January 2013 01:57

I had downloaded and installed xampp on my external hard drive for school in Aug. 2012. It worked fine all semester. Over the holiday break I did not use it, when I started school back up this past week I find that apache will not run. It says started then goes right to stop. Tomcat will start and run, but I need apache and MySQL. Can anyone help me?

Hi 123help,

A short salutation is an act of politeness. Even if the internet is an virtual area, there is always a human being behind the screen. A polite beginning helps to get polite answers too. Please keep that in mind if you start a new thread. Thank you.

Back to topic.
Can you please post the contents of your \xampp\apache\logs\error.log?

best wishes,
