That red X is related to the ability to manipulate windows services and this is related to this:

Skype is capturing your port 443. With that problem you will not be able to start Apache.
Try this: [FGA] solving Port 80 & 443 in use by Skype issue

Port 80 is occupied by a different process. Maybe this is Skype too, maybe something different. If the problem is not gone after reconfigurating Skype you should take a look here: [FGA] solving Port 80 in use by PID 4 (http.sys) issue

You have already installed MySQL as single installation. You will not be able to use the MySQL app already shipped with XAMPP.

Please i do not understand what you mean by "You have already installed MySQL as single installation. You will not be able to use the MySQL app already shipped with XAMPP". Forgive me if this question is funny. This is my first day here and my IT skills isnt that great.

XAMPP is a bundle of very well known webserver components. Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc are included in XAMPP.
But your system does already have a MySQL installation which does not come from XAMPP (installed to C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\)

Ok i get it now. I truly have an app that requires Mysql to run. So what do i need to do so the mysql in xamp can run. I cannot uninstall the one i have already because the app is still functional. How do i go about it. Thanks

if you cannot uninstall the other MySQL program, then you will only have two possibilities:

1. simply don't start and use the XAMPP MySQL
You can use your existing MySQL with the other XAMPP components. But keep in mind that XAMPP is preconfigured, so for example the phpmyadmin to administrate MySQL is configured to use specific login credentials. So if you want to still use phpMyAdmin, you will need to reconfigure it or maybe need to reinstall it so that you can have the full functionality.
And you cannot use the MySQL Buttons provided by the XAMPP control panel to start and stop MySQL.

2. reconfigure your XAMPP MySQL to listen to a different port and service name
That way you can start and use both MySQL simultaniously.

If i were in your situation i would prefer option 1, but that maybe requires an amount of knowledge about the related components.
And i cannot estimate if you will need the XAMPP MySQL or not.

Great!
Like i said earlier, my skills are not that great so i will settle for the 2 option. So please direct me on how to reconfigure mysql to listen to a dfference port and service name

You will need to do three things:

1. In your file \xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini change the setting port from 3306 to something different (there are two occurancies which need to be changed there)
2. in your file \xampp\phpMyAdmin\config.inc.php add the following line
Code: Select all
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['port'] = '';
inside the quotes add the specified port you have choosen in 1.
This line is best place beneath the setting $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host']
3. in your xampp control panel settings dialigue you need to replace the settings for the default service name and also change the port.

unregister the windows services of the XAMPP components by clicking the green tick icon and try to start the components without the services.
