Apache and ProFTPD won't start

Postby Yunnimun » 24. January 2016 08:05

PC: Toshiba Satellite U840W-F747; 10 gig ram; 1.7GHz CPU
XAMPP: 5.6.15-1
OS: Xubuntu 14.04.3

I have a fresh install of Xubuntu and xampp, no Skype or any IM, just Firefox.
I tried to run ampps and webuzo, and neither worked, so I removed them.
I am a complete noob when it comes to linux and xampps.

The terminal tells me that the reason for failure to start is that:
Another web server is already running.(Apache)
Another FTP daemon is already running.

Terminal infro:
Code: Select all
jan@jan-Satellite-U840W-F747:~$ sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
[sudo] password for jan:
Starting XAMPP for Linux 5.6.15-1...
XAMPP: Starting Apache...fail.
XAMPP:  Another web server is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...ok.
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...fail.
XAMPP:  Another FTP daemon is already running.


Log report:

I have some extra info:

Under '/usr/local/apps/' there are the following folders:
apache
bin
etc
include
lib
man
mysql
perl
php55
pureftpd
python2
sbin
share

I think it is system files that came with my xubuntu installation but I am not sure.

Exactly. And there is also a MySQL version installed on your Xubuntu (according to your listing of /usr/local/apps). As well Perl and PHP. So either deinstall all these pre-installed tools (you have to do so with the help of the Ubuntu Software Center) or deinstall Xampp (simply remove /opt/lampp completely), as you dont need it. You can run only one server environment.

Okay... Thanks... Problem is, I can't find these applications under the software centre and I don't know how to use them. That is why I needed XAMPP. How do I use them or delete them?

I would start the software center and enter "apache" (or mysql etc.) in the search box. In my Linux Mint it would show up as "Installed" and i would click "Uninstall/DeInstall" or similar. Any further questions ask in a Xubuntu forum.

Hi!
I have a very similar problem. My OS is Lubuntu. When I start XAMPP I receive this message in terminal:
Starting XAMPP for Linux 5.5.24-0...
XAMPP: Starting Apache...fail.
XAMPP: Another web server is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...ok.

I think that I've installed lampp for 2 times and this is the problem, but how to fix it? I deleted XAMPP & installed it once more, but all the same.
Please, help!

Everything is already said in this thread. Either delete Xampp or the Software from your Lubuntu installation.

Yes of course, it is useless to install it again. Delete Xampp or keep Xampp. If you want to keep it, delete Apache from Lubuntu (but again, this i already told above).
