What does this mean...

Postby dia6812 » 17. January 2018 21:49

So I have been having trouble trouble getting my apache to work... I finally found what the problem is but don't know what is means or how to fix it... the error says

httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 37 of C:/Users/godlu/Desktop/xampp/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf: ServerRoot must be a valid directory

This is what line 37 says:

ServerRoot "C:/xampp/apache"

Any and all help is appreciated. Thank You!

Hi,

That means that your ServerRoot path is not correct. XAMPP is searching for your XAMPP binaries in C:\XAMPP, but in reality they are saved in C:/Users/godlu/Desktop/xampp/xampp.
Same advice as in your other thread: Install XA;PP in C:\xampp, not your users directory.

best wishes,
