Apache starts then closes dowm

Hi
Just installed the latest version which seemed to install OK but it starts and indicates that it is running in the CP but then shuts down. I have tried three reinstalls and a fresh download but still get this error in the Apache log:

[Mon Dec 30 17:02:12.485401 2013] [ssl:warn] [pid 1528:tid 252] AH01909: RSA certificate configured for www.example.com:443 does NOT include an ID which matches the server name

Can someone advise what I need to do to resolve this.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Charles,

The error.log is looking okay. No indicator why your Apache is getting a shutdown signal.
please execute the \xampp\apache_start.bat script and post the response you get.

best wishes,
Altrea

Executing that file appears to have started it and it continues to run. The CP shows it as running but I note that under 'Modules Service' it shows as an X (don't know if that is correct?).

The red X just means that there is no Windows servive registered for this single component to start it right after windows start.
So it is absolutely okay to have this red X there.

There is one more thing we could do to identify the problem.
In your XAMPP control panel Config you can enable the setting "Show debug information" and set it to value "More Details".
After that and restarting the control panel it will give much more information about what it is doing and maybe at which point Apache want to stop again.
