Postby dstang » 04. July 2015 18:56

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and to XAMPP also. Can someone please help me out here

Windows 8.1
64Bit
XAMPP Control Panel 3.2.1
XAMPP 5.6.8

I am unable to start APACHE... It just shows "Attempting to start Apache service..." and doesnt go forward

Netstats shows port:80 is free. can someone help please?

You installed Apache 2.4 separately instead of using the Apache which already comes with XAMPP.

When i try to XAMPP new, i just noticed that APACHE is greyed out. So During XAMPP installation itself Apache is not getting installed.

Thank you

I'm pretty sure it is greyed out because it is mandatory install rather than an option. You can check this by looking in the Apache folder after install.

OK figured out. There was another program called OpenEMR which had Apache in the files and thats the reason XAMPP installation was conflicting. Thanks guys!

There are no errors.
These messages are pretty much normal for a fresh xampp installation
