Apache shutdown unexpectedly

Postby Skorz88 » 01. December 2015 09:59

Everytime I try to run apache I get this error message:

9:53:44 [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
9:53:44 [Apache] Status change detected: running
9:53:44 [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
9:53:44 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
9:53:44 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
9:53:44 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
9:53:44 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
9:53:44 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
9:53:44 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
9:53:44 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

Yes, I've seen the posts like mine and I've searched the forum for some solution, but the only thing I've found was to run it as admin. I already did it and there's something else strange. I can't open log files cause they don't exist. Can anyone help me, please?

start your control panel with enhanced administration rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator) and show us all messages it showes beginning with the very first you can find by scrolling up.

Guess the problem is that port 80 is in use.

I couldn't get it work with the topic you've linked. I can't find any folder called etc in my Windows\sytsem32\drivers folder. And I can't tell what program is using port 80 by using the mentioned console commands.

Every Windows does have a Windows\system32\drivers\etc folder with a hosts file in it. It could be hidden but it is present.

And the linked post describes more than one possible solution. If one is not working for you try another one.
