Apache won't start - I have tried everything...

Postby aka_d » 30. November 2017 22:00

New install of XAMPP in windows 7 professional on Lenovo ThinkPad - Apache won't start but MySQL and Filezilla start normally with no errors. On the first install I got a dialog that mentioned some resistance from the OS so once I had a problem starting Apache, I uninstalled XAMPP, disabled ALL of the security apps and re-installed XAMPP. I have: configured Skype not to grab ports 80 and 443; replaced (and put back) the entire Apache folder; changed ports 443 and 80 in both places within httpd.conf and httpd-ssl-conf (separately and together). I haven't messed with the certificate because I don't believe that should be necessary to reach an http://localhost address (tell me if i'm wrong). I have looked through this forum and across the web to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'm sure a solution would be beneficial to the forum with 36k downloads of this app per week. It can't be just me...can it?

All of these readouts are from running as administrator

apache_install_service.bat from running xampp_start as administrator - it doesn't get to the xampp window so I could not retrieve corroborating data
won't let me copy but..

Please use the full name 'key_buffer_size' instead.
