I can't start apache server

Postby cambiadeso » 24. March 2010 13:27

Hello. I'm not english, sorry for my english
I download the xampp 1.3.7a, and I uncompressed that in /opt/lampp.
When i go to start lampp (sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start), the terminal shows a error message like this:
Code: Select all
Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.7.3a...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache!
XAMPP: Starting diagnose...
XAMPP: Sorry, I've no idea what's going wrong.
XAMPP: Please contact our forum http://community.apachefriends.org/f/
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.

what's the problem?

look, I manage to get it working by changing the following parameter in the htppd.conf file which is in the /opt/lampp/etc/ directory

where is written Listen 80 I changed to 50 so it became Listen 50 and that apache error was gone as soon as I restarted lampp....

I hope it may help you guys as well that is encounter the same issue

God bless y'all

So,. maybe another program was listening Port 80? As we know, two programs cannot be on one port.
