Windows 10 1809 update kills Apache

Postby EIF » 23. January 2019 13:45

Since this update I suddenly also have this can't start error. It is not the firewall or port number. (changed that before) Yesterday it works, totday not anymore.

Code: Select all
13:09:29  [Apache]    Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
13:09:29  [Apache]    This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
13:09:29  [Apache]    improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
13:09:29  [Apache]    Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
13:09:29  [Apache]    the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
13:09:29  [Apache]    If you need more help, copy and post this
13:09:29  [Apache]    entire log window on the forums

Any ideas how to solve this?

Had the same problem with this 1809 update for Windows 10.

1: In the search bottom left of your screen, type, task manager, then click on task manager in the results to open it.
2: Select the services tab in the task manager.
3: Look in the center column and Scroll down to World wide web publishing service. Right click on it and sect stop.

Start XAMPP and see if it solves your problem.
