Apache Stopped, Shutdown, Blocked? Uninstall.dat not found?

Postby Ingy » 04. February 2015 22:07

Greetings all!

I deleted a user file in localhost phpmyadmin, thought would be a good idea to uninstall and re-install xampp to correct my problem, however once re-installed and tried running apache then these following error messages occur.

Note: I did try editing the following with no luck also:
config Apache (httpd:conf) - Listen 80 to 8080 & ServerName : localhost:80 to 8080
C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra (httpd-ssl.conf) - Listen 443 to 4499 & VirtualHost default:443 to 4499 & ServerName www.example.com:443 to 4499

Anyhow this message appears when starting apache:

I know its all really fun but any help would be more than appreciated. Once more question tho, could I just uninstall and try again, this I have tried however failed as now when uninstalling xampp I get this message:

"There has been an error. The uninstall.dat file cannot be found and is required to uninstall the application, aborting"

Any ideas how to uninstall xampp if the above problem can not be fixed, maybe the second time round re-installing xampp will be more successful.

Thank you all in advance. :)

Re: Apache Stopped, Shutdown, Blocked? Uninstall.dat not fou

Can't you uninstall Apache from control panel of your PC by using uninstall option? Well, If u succeed to uninstall then re install it. if the Apache got stop again unexpectedly then you can follow the following method (Which solved my problem either). i.e. Run the Xampp as administrator and then go to Apache Configuration panel and follow the following Instruction :

Apache configuration

Depending on the used XAMPP installation the code parts to be searched and replaced can differ!
It is recommend to use a good text editor to search the occurances of the searched ports across folder and subfolders of \xampp\apache\conf\

Changing port 80
\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf


• Open in your editor \xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf
• Search for the following line
CODE: SELECT ALL
Listen 80
Change to your prefered port (e.g. port 10080)
CODE: SELECT ALL
Listen 10080
• Search for the following line
CODE: SELECT ALL
ServerName localhost:80
Change to your prefered port (e.g. port 10080)
CODE: SELECT ALL
ServerName localhost:10080
• save the file
Changing port 443
\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf


• Open in your editor \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf
• Search for the following line
CODE: SELECT ALL
Listen 443
Change to your prefered port (e.g. port 10443)
CODE: SELECT ALL
Listen 10443
• Search for the following line
CODE: SELECT ALL
<VirtualHost _default_:443>
Change to your prefered port (e.g. port 10443)
CODE: SELECT ALL
<VirtualHost _default_:10443>
• Search for the following line
CODE: SELECT ALL
ServerName www.example.com:443
Change to your prefered port (e.g. port 10443)
CODE: SELECT ALL
ServerName www.example.com:10443
• save the file

After changing the Apache configuration files Apache needs to be restartet


Well man, Have a great day
