what is wrong with it ?

19:48:59 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
19:48:59 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,

The first problem is that lousy error message which clearly states to post it here. Only problem is, that message tells us a grand total of nothing to be helpful to anybody sadly.

Now the line in that message 'Press the Logs button to view error logs' on the other hand is what we really need. Do we need the entire log contents is highly unlikely but any lines in it that have (something:alert) (something:crit) (something:emerg) and (something:error) in them are usually highly useful. We should not need anything with warn, info or notice in them. If there are none, this is because Apache is dying before the logging is even started.

You may be able to gleam some extra 'clues' from the Windows Even Viewer as well, maybe. When there is something, it almost always two messages in a row and one of them is useful. The one that tells you something you like "the Apache service has shutdown" or something similar is not very useful, we already know that.

If all else fails, start Apache from a command prompt and it should be noisy about what is wrong.
