XAMPP Apache running problem on Windows 8

Postby Kobus Dippenaar » 26. February 2014 13:32

Hi Guys, Girls, to all out there!
I need assistance regarding the problems shown in the control Panel.
2:21:41 PM [Apache] Apache Service detected with wrong path ******************* Where is it looking?
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Change XAMPP Apache and Control Panel settings or
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Found Path: "C:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice ****** I have deleted all my manual installations
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Expected Path: "c:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice ****** don't know what to do
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Problem detected!
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4! ******* Went into config changed port 80 to 90 Selected httpd.conf on the Control Panel.
02:21:41 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
02:21:41 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
02:21:41 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

Appreciate your input.
Blessings

I have fixed the Port 80 Problem.
Somthing is hidden somewhere.
I have the following outstanding errors.

02:46:35 PM [Apache] Apache Service detected with wrong path

Go into the Windows Services and change the Service "Apache" as suggested (change path).

Sorry I don't get it!! I selected SERVICES on the XAMPP Control Panel, selected Apache24 in the displayed index, right clicked it, saw the incorrect path, but no way to change it.

No, you are totally wrong.

I wrote "Windows Service". Windows is an operating system (you heard about?), and a "Service" is a program that usuallay runs in the background and it is mostly started when you boot Windows. It is NOT(!) Xampp Service.

If you dont know, how to configure Windows Services (this is an option in your Windows Administration), i cannot help you, because i dont have an english Windows and the german buttons and menus are different. You should Google for a Wikipedia, that explains you, what is meant by "Windows Service" and where and how to change these. You urgently should improve your Windows knowledge.

No Nobbie, Kobus is not totally wrong.

The Services button on the XAMPP Control Panel brings up the Windows Services Panel without the bother of going through the Windows Control Panel.

Windows don't provide a GUI for such sensitive data like the Service path.

You could change the path in the command line ("sc config" command), but that is not recommend for a foreign service (The Apache 2.4 service is not an XAMPP Apache 2.4 service).
The recommend way is to use the prepared ways to unregister the service (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/platform/windows.html) and register it again for the XAMPP Apache in the control panel (if really needed).
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
