Apache not starting

Postby samarthvijh » 05. March 2018 13:13

My Apache server is not starting. Initially I started the Apache server on port 2121 still it said that "Attempting to start Apache service" and when I changed the port again to 80 it is again giving the same message "Attempting to start Apache service". Please do suggest what needs to be done in the said case?

unregister the Windows services again.

Move your entire XAMPP folder to C:\, so that there is a C:\xampp\ folder at the end containing all your XAMPP installation files.
