Apache starts and stops Error

Postby erotmil » 05. September 2015 23:05

Hi, searched the forum couldn't find an answer,
New install of Xammp 5.6.xx on a windows 10 laptop
Apache starts and stops and throws the below message
I thought maybe probably norton was blocking it. (disabled auto protect and firewall still won't stay running)
Mysql and Tomcat run, even filezilla n mercury run
mine says :
5:46:45 PM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
5:46:45 PM [Apache] Status change detected: running
5:46:46 PM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
5:46:46 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
5:46:46 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
5:46:46 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
5:46:46 PM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
5:46:46 PM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
5:46:46 PM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
5:46:46 PM [Apache] entire log window on the forums
check event logs for:
none showing up for the frame time
& turn off the antivirus/firewall (did not help)
How do i get my ports, I see setting in xammp says 80 and 443 tried changing them , still no joy
Whats " missing dependencies" mean?
what else could it be ?
I am admin so privileges shouldn't matter unless there a permission setting
thanks will post what i find, any help appreciated :cry:

Ok so read the FAQs,

I created a shortcut on desktop, but have to right click it every time an run as admin.
Couldn't find a way to make to I can just click it, no biggy. at least its working :D
