Sorry i'm totally new to this and can't find the button to create a new post, so I am just replying to this one.
I am using windows 1.8.2 however.
Anyways, I notice that whenever I try to start Apache the control panel says "attempting to start apache"... but it never actually runs. It doesn't crash either. It just says it is attempting to start apache indefinitely. Any idea what the problem may be? Thanks in advance!
