How to re-Run Apache and MySQL?

Postby borgy » 10. June 2019 11:07

Hi Guys,

My Windows 10 OS got corrupted and not booting anymore. So what I did was, I added a new SSD and installed a fresh copy of Windows 10.
My XAMPP folder is installed in a different drive. Now, I was trying to run the Apache and MySQL but no luck at all. Below is the error I am getting.

14:09:10 [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
14:09:10 [Apache] Status change detected: running
14:09:11 [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
14:09:11 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
14:09:11 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
14:09:11 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
14:09:11 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
14:09:11 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
14:09:11 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
14:09:11 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

I have even change the new drive letter in all the .conf files but still, I am having this error.

I even tried to install a new XAMPP on C: and copied the htdocs and mysql folder there but the most important database I need was not appearing. OMG!
So, I need to make the old XAMPP to work to backup my database.

Please help.

At the very first run the setup_xampp.bat script. This should set all needed paths correctly.

If this will not help to start your XAMPP components we need the contents of your Apache error.log file and the response of your apache_start.bat.bat script.
