I suddenly got this annoying ' Error 1! Couldn't start Apache! ' message while restarting the xampp. I have changed the document root and so I had to restart the xampp in order to make it work. First time it showed me something like, 'invalid document root, path must be a directory'. I realized my mistake and put the proper path, then again restarted to see the 'Error 1!Couldn't start Apache!' message. Before I restarted, I had removed the error_log, and now, I can't even see my log to view the actual error message. I know I have done stupid things here, but I BADLY need help to get this resolved. Please help me out. I have no clue.
