Cannot open page at http://localhost OR http://127.0.0.1

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Cannot open page at http://localhost OR http://127.0.0.1

Postby stargazer » 03. August 2004 16:02

I've just installed the "XAMPP" folder at my root drive, i.e. C:\ & click on "setup_xampp" batch file to set it up for Windows XP Professional. I also installed apache & mysql as a service accordingly.

However, when I launch both the "apache_start" & "mysql_start" batch files & open my browser at http://localhost, despite waiting for a good 15 mins or more, the start page still refuses to open, & my hard drive keeps running without ever stopping (i.e. the indicator light still "on" all this while).

I even tried shutting down everything & then restarting my notebook & go thru the entire procodere again...but still same outcome...start page cannot open & hard drive keeps running without stopping...really frustrating... :cry:

Can anyone help or offer any advice...?

No Start

I would try running the batch file xamp_start.exe from a MSDOS window so that you can see any error messages being generated - then you could check the task manager process log to see if apache / mysql has been invoked by the xampp start up application.

I'm still encountering the initial problem I mentioned here the first time...this time I looked up the error log & it was reported as :-
"An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket : child 2748: Encountered too many errors accepting client connections.
Possible causes : dynamic address renewal or incompatible VPN or firewall software. Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive.

So with that, I tried disabling my Mcafee firewall & then run thru entire procedure to restart XAMPP, but still with same result.

Next, I looked at the "possible causes" but just cannot understand what it means by "Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive" ...??

Could someone enlightened me on that??

Hi stargazer,

try uninstalling your mcAfee Firewall, there are some problems know with products of Mcafee. And simply shuting it down doesn't help.

To look for the directive, have a look in your httpd.conf :)

So long

Hi Taker,

maybe you could also send us some info what your error.log says?
And/or what does Apache say when you start it via the batchfile?

So long

try rename the actual httpd.conf to httpd.conf.save2 and rename the httpd.conf.safe to httpd.conf

Rename httpd.conf doesn't work 4 me.
Here is my startuplist.
Here conf file.
When I start xampp_start.exe I don't see any errors.

Hi guys,

I've finally solved the problem...based on the error log's suggested possible causes, one of it was :

"...Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive."

Firstly, I looked up Apache's manual for indication of above error & it's resolution. Next, I open the "httpd.config" file in ' ../xampp/apache/conf ' folder & scrutinised every line & found the code line "# Win32DisableAcceptEx directive".

All I have to do was to "uncomment" it by removing the"#" sign, saved it & restarted Apache & Mysql & also started browser at http://localhost...& the rest was history...

Besides this, I also "uncomment" the appropriate portion of code ( in the same file ) that enables the proxy server, as instructed by XAMPP's installation guide.

Hope this explanation will help others in same boat.

I did clear install and in httpd.conf file I added these lines
EnableSendfile off
EnableMMAP off
Win32DisableAcceptEx ON

I started apache and I got this message:
[notice] Disabled use of AcceptEx() WinSock2 API

but everything works just great.................. 4 now

Thank all of you

I had to upgrade to Windows Millenium from 98 and XAMPP stoped working - old one and the new one :/
I have in httpd.conf uncommented Win32DisableAcceptEx ON as default. When I run xampp_start it doesn't realy start:

and the window closes just after that.
