Explain A Problen to a Newbie

Postby Kingofcats » 09. June 2014 15:03

Hello, I started following thenewboston's beginner guide to PHP. On episode 3 he tells me to open XAMPP Control Panel and start MySQL and Apache. Now when I click start on Apache and give it a second it doesn't start and this appears in the console

"8:53:48 AM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
8:53:49 AM [Apache] Status change detected: running
8:53:49 AM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
8:53:49 AM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
8:53:49 AM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
8:53:49 AM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
8:53:49 AM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
8:53:49 AM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
8:53:49 AM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
8:53:49 AM [Apache] entire log window on the forums"

What can I do to fix this. Please explain like I don't know anything. Thank you!

What do your logs tell you?

Common reasons can include port 80 being in use by another program.
