I have Installed XAMPP and it is working fine in my machine. There was an issue with the port so I changed the port to 81 so my local host is working fine with this url http://localhost:81/wordpress/ (the wordpress folder located inside xampp/htdocs folder).
I am facing another issue , now Iam trying to configure another website that is outside the XAMPP folder. So I modified the httpd-xampp.conf file as follows
Alias /testproject "D:/Work/testproject/"
Options Indexes +FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
Allow from all
I have restored the project database named "testproject" in phpmyadmin
I am using XAMPP 1.8.1
So the issue is I can't start the apache service , Showing an error like,
Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
6:53:37 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
6:53:37 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
6:53:37 PM [Apache] Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
6:53:37 PM [Apache] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
If i removed the above code from httpd-xampp.conf file, the apache will works fine..
Is that possible to suggest any solutions? Or is there any other settings or files need to change?. I tried my level best to fix this issue, nothing works.
Help really appreciable..
