server certificate does NOT include an ID which matches...

Postby newbie86 » 10. August 2015 01:00

Hello Apache friends :)

I'm very very new to this. I feel like I'm a bit over my head, but being stubborn, I want to run Wordpress locally on XAMPP and actually make it work.

First off, my XAMPP version is actually 3.2.1, which was not one of the choices when registering... as long as the version of XAMPP is found on the control panel.

My current problem is that, as it does for many, Apache stops immediately after starting. This seems to keep me from being able to install Wordpress as well.

I found one topic where a person having the same problem restarted their computer and it magically started working again. I tried that, to no avail.

Any other ideas??

(Also, I should say that I have no idea how to access the server certificate, nor what my server name is... how could I find this?)


Here is the error log:

The servername is "localhost" for Xampp "out of the box". There is no valid certificate delivered, "real" certificates have to be ordered online at certain providers. But usually you dont need any certificates for local development.

I cannot see any error, due to that log Apache is up and running. The warnings about example.com etc. are not important, this is only an example in the configuration file (which lacks a valid certificate in order to work, but this is no problem for Apache, it runs anyway).

The Control Panel is version 3.2.1. This means that the window where all the controls for the various components of XAMPP come together has version 3.2.1. It is like seeing the controls of a plane, the whole dock with all the knobs and switches has version 3.2.1, the actual technology behind it, like brakes, on-bord radio and so on might be the latest version available. So you can understand the Control Panel as a sort of "board" where all the controls for the various components of XAMPP come together. However this says nothing about the version of the XAMPP components.

@Nobbie How can one find out about the version of the components in the context of a remote diagnosis please?

@Newbie86 have you recently downloaded XAMPP for Windows from the XAMPP index or download site? If so you have the latest version.

Now, Nobbie is correct, if you see the error.log it means that Apache is running.

Also you need to run the Control Panel as Administrator.
  • rightclick your xampp-control.exe file
  • choose "run as Administraor"
  • if UAC is enabled you need to confirm that you really want to run as Administrator
  • if you are not logged in as Administrator on your Windows system you need to type in the credentials of an administrator

Also check this thread viewtopic.php?f=16&t=69784 to find out how to get Apache running.

I have just recently started using it and it is great fun and WP also works great with it, so it is definitely doable, just never give up!

If you have more questions fire away, most of the time it is either Skype or some other app blocking the port on which Apache likes to serve documents, when that port is occupied by Skype for example, the door is closed and Apache will tell you "I cannot come in this room as the door is closed and now I am closing down because of that", in a way.. you see what I mean?
100% pure perseverance, nothing else!

Hi guys,

sorry for posting in this relativly old thread, but I have the exact same problem and I'm not able to solve it! When I installed xampp a few days ago, I changed port numbers in the config document and everything worked just fine, now I wanted to install wordpress but don't have access to the localhost! :-( (Apache and MySQL is running though)

Hi,

This should answer your question:
