Starting Apache etc as Services

Postby TonyWilliams » 01. January 2015 12:48

I've just downloaded the latets version of xampp and it appeared to install OK.

I wanted the modules to be run as services but when I click the services button as in the instructions, it opens the Windows Services screen. Also there are no red crosses against each module. Has something gone wrong with the installation?
I am a novice so please be gentle!
Thanks
Tony

I've just restarted the Control panel using Run as Administrator and the red crosses have appeared but when I click on Services the Windows services screen still opens?

I stopped the modules and then clicked the red boxes and got the message asking if I wanted to start the module as a service so I clicked yes. Apart from the Tomcat module where I get an error message in the Control Panel window that says "Service was NOT (un)installed!"

Anyone any ideas?
Thanks

I am having the same issues as Tony. Would love a solve. Tried going to the tomcat folder and clicking on uninstalling.bat which someone suggested would work - no luck. All other solutions seem very complicated for something that a lot of users are reporting. Latest version of Xampp and windows 7. All other services are running although I did not get a congratulations screen :(

Ok I have deinstalled malwarebytes. port 80 taken up by apache. Nothing on 8080 (using cports). Now when I click start tomcat is saying it is "attempting to install" and that "status change has been detected:running" But that red cross is still there. Help! Very frustrating for what was supposed to be a quick install.

Tomcat says it is running but that red cross will not go away. went to the local host http://localhost/xampp/ - control panel came up OK for 5.6.3. I guess that means all is well in the Xampp world just the buggy little red cross that won't go away. I imagine it will come back to bite me as I edit sites using wordpress.

Tomcat is not neccessary for WordPress. You only need Apache and MySQL.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
