Apache shutdown unexpectedly

Postby Zeagle » 03. November 2015 13:51

Hi,

My XAMPP setup worked flawless until a Windows Update that came through.
Now everytime I start my Apache server, I get the following error:
Code: Select all
13:24:02  [Apache]    Checking default ports...
13:24:02  [Apache]    Attempting to start Apache service...
13:24:02  [Apache]    Executing "net start "Apache2.4""
13:24:05  [Apache]    Status change detected: running
13:24:07  [Apache]    Status change detected: stopped
13:24:07  [Apache]    Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
13:24:07  [Apache]    This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
13:24:07  [Apache]    improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.

If I run apache_start.bat:

I tried removing the httpd.pid, but no avail.

My MySQL and FileZilla services are running fine.

Anyone that can help?

With kind regards,

Hi Zeagle,

Did you start your XAMPP control panel with elevated administration rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator)?
Please show us the full contents of your control panel log window. There can be much more helpful information than just the Apache related.
Did you take a look into your Windows event log for information why Apache don't want to start?
Did you try to unregister the Windows Service for your Apache and start it without this service?

best wishes,
Altrea
