Apache stops unexpectedly

Postby szilvia » 14. January 2016 12:44

Hi, I need your help, please!

Since yesterday, my apache keeps stopping or rather doesn't even starts properly. i did two things: I attempted to install Drupal - which was unsuccessful and cancelled/uninstalled the whole process -, the other is a normal Windows update. In Netstat, i don't see anything listening to the ports 80 or 443.

Details:
11:11:25 [main] Initializing Control Panel
11:11:25 [main] Windows Version: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
11:11:25 [main] XAMPP Version: 5.6.3
11:11:25 [main] Control Panel Version: 3.2.1 [ Compiled: May 7th 2013 ]
11:11:25 [main] Running with Administrator rights - good!
11:11:25 [main] XAMPP Installation Directory: "c:\xampp\"
11:11:25 [main] Checking for prerequisites
11:11:25 [main] All prerequisites found

11:15:13 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,

Hi,

Execute the apache_start.bat script and show us the output.

Best wishes,

Hi, thanks for the fast reply. I couldn't printscreen on my Surface :cry: but basically it is saying that it could not find "C:/xampp/apps/drupal/conf/httpd-prefix.conf" in the apache config file.
Is this left from the Drupal installation? Anyway, after I #-d the line out and restarted, the apache is running!!!
Thanks for the support :D
