Another case of Apache won't start

Postby Amatheya » 17. March 2015 23:26

Hi,

Apache has suddenly decided that it doesn't want to work.

I've checked that nothing else is using port 80, I haven't loaded any new software etc. I did make a couple of changes to the config file before it stopped working and at first I thought I must have messed something up but I had taken a copy before changing anything just in case, so I put everything back the way it was before I started messing around and it still didn't work... I'm not sure what else I can try.

The message I'm getting is:
10:22:35 PM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
10:22:35 PM [Apache] Status change detected: running
10:22:36 PM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
10:22:36 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
10:22:36 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
10:22:36 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
10:22:36 PM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
10:22:36 PM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
10:22:36 PM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
10:22:36 PM [Apache] entire log window on the forums

The error logs don't seem to have anything relevant in them so I'm at a loss :-(

And you really think, that we may know what you did wrong? How that?

Same for me, I cannot help without knowing anything about your installation and your changes. Uninstall Xampp and begin from scratch.

Nobbie - when I want to hear the sarcastic comments of a silly little boy who has nothing better to do with his time than putting people down when they are asking for help, you will be the first person I turn to. However, for now if you can't say anything polite and helpful please do not bother saying anything at all.

Altrea - Thank you so much for the tip. I tried what you suggested and it lead me straight to the problem. I'm now back up and running. You're a star!!! :-)

And why don't you tell us what the problem was, so that other people can get a benifit from your request in our board?

btw: Nobbie was in no way sarcastic. You don't gave really much information. Providing proper help with this little amount of information is simply impossible.

You think you are funny? You are not, silly little boy.
