XAMPP won't work?

Postby OnMyWay » 29. March 2015 13:50


I downloaded XAMPP yesterday, it worked, but when I tried to open the admin panel of MySQL,
it brings me to a page with 'Webpage not available'.
I reinstalled it today without firewalls (I use Bitdefender Total Security 2015), it does the same.
I opened it in Administrator modus.

The log:

Thanks in advance!

You need to start Apache too to access the Admin interface (phpmyadmin).
