Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly

Postby mavuser » 04. November 2013 17:57

Hi got this message when starting Apache:
Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
11:35:15 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
11:35:15 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
11:35:15 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
11:35:15 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
11:35:15 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
11:35:15 [Apache] entire log window on the forums
The Apache_start is reading like this:
"httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 556 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Include takes one argument, Name(s) of the config file<s> to be included; fails if the wildcard does not match at least one file"
Any ideas?
Thank you

Hi,

Any ideas?

Any information about line 556 in your \xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file?

best wishes,

Well,
I'm going for Vufind installation (https://vufind.org/wiki/vufind2:installation_windows) so it would be these lines:
Include c:/vufind/local/httpd-vufind.conf
and:
LoadModule php5_module "c:\Program Files\PHP\php5apache2_2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
PHPIniDir "c:\Program Files\PHP\"
The "Include" line seems to work whit "#"
Vufind still not working so far and that could be caused by many others factors .
Is there any easy Vufind install's instructions whit XAMPP outhere?
So far I've read both Vufind and XAMPP instructions but can't merge them together.
Thank's for any support!

Have you ask that question on one of the vulfind support channels?
It cannot be the task of XAMPP to provide installation instructions for all the hundred of thousand webscripts in the world.
