Hello Repute!

In the file /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf you find in line 318 the Group directive:

Code: Select all
Group nogroup

Change this to:

Code: Select all
Group #-1

And it should work again.

It's a problem with the differences between all the Linux distributions. Some want "nogroup" some want "#-1". I think I've to solve that somehow...

I had the same problem but not with the Group. Only this error appeared when tried to activate LAMPP - " Error 1! Couldn't start Apache! ". I am running Apache with SSL.

This is my first time on XAMPP. I am using icepack 2.75.
