Apache Issue - Logs Empty

Postby Teeklin » 21. November 2016 20:18

1:14:04 PM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
1:14:04 PM [Apache] Status change detected: running
1:14:05 PM [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
1:14:05 PM [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
1:14:05 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
1:14:05 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
1:14:05 PM [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
1:14:05 PM [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
1:14:05 PM [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
1:14:05 PM [Apache] entire log window on the forums

I've read the FAQ, used netstat to see nothing was running on port 80 or 443, then went through and changed it to 8082 and 444 just for the heck of it just incase (in both the httpd.conf and the httpd-ssl.conf) and I've also tried to make a virtual host in the vhosts file as well with the same result. The problem is that the log file for Apache errors is empty and stays empty no matter how many times I've tried it. I've run it as Admin, restarted a few times, nothing in the Windows Event viewer. Not sure how to go about troubleshooting what the issue is at this point without an error log!

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Then this is not needed.

My advice: revert all your changes from default and follow the instructions in both what you posted and the top of the forum.
