Apache shutting down

Postby PaulL » 05. August 2013 13:40

I just installed XAMPP ver. 8.2.1. I'm running Windows 7, SP1.

4:05:50 PM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
4:05:50 PM [Apache] Status change detected: running
4:05:51 PM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
4:05:51 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
4:05:51 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
4:05:51 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
4:05:51 PM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
4:05:51 PM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
4:05:51 PM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this

4:51:12 PM [Apache] Problem detected!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
4:51:12 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
4:51:12 PM [Apache] Problem detected!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] Port 443 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
4:51:12 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
4:51:12 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

I'm not sure I know what I'm doing, but I tried to config Apache files by moving port 80 to 81 and 443 to 444.
Still not working.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on what to do?

Hello,

If you change the ports in the Apache config files, you also need to change them in the XAMPP Control Panel or it will still look for the old ports.

Also, PID 4 is the System process which typically means a Windows Service is blocking those ports. One common blocker is the World Wide Web Publishing service. You can click the Services button in the XAMPP Control Panel, see if that service is there, and stop/disable it.
