Apache not starting

Postby leenav » 23. September 2005 14:23

Hi,

I cant´t start Apache and MySQL is also deactivated.

I first installed XAMPP on OS 10.3.9 - all worked fine - then run the security program: (/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp security) and changed the passwords. I used a same password for all of them, different than my root password.

Tietokone-Leena-Virkkunen:/Users/leena root# /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start
Starting XAMPP for MacOS X 0.4...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for MacOS X started.
Tietokone-Leena-Virkkunen:/Users/leena root# /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp security
XAMPP: Quick security check...
XAMPP: Your XAMPP pages are NOT secured by a password.
XAMPP: Do you want to set a password? [yes] yes
XAMPP: Password:
XAMPP: Password (again):
XAMPP: Password protection active. Please use 'xampp' as user name!
XAMPP: MySQL is accessable via network.
XAMPP: Normaly that's not recommended. Do you want me to turn it off? [yes] no
XAMPP: MySQL has no root passwort set!!!
XAMPP: Do you want to set a password? [yes] yes
XAMPP: Write the password somewhere down to make sure you won't forget it!!!
XAMPP: Password:
XAMPP: Password (again):
XAMPP: Setting new MySQL root password.
XAMPP: Setting phpMyAdmin's root password to the new one.
XAMPP: The FTP password is still set to 'xampp'.
XAMPP: Do you want to change the password? [yes] yes
XAMPP: Password:
XAMPP: Password (again):
XAMPP: Reload ProFTPD...
XAMPP: Done.

After this I couldn´t use MySQL any more. I uninstalled the whole package with rm -rf /Applications/xampp and made a new install. After this Apache didn´t launch and MySQL is deactivated.

How could I fix this password mess?

Tietokone-Leena-Virkkunen:/Users/leena root# /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start
Starting XAMPP for MacOS X 0.4...
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache!
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for MacOS X started.
Tietokone-Leena-Virkkunen:/Users/leena root#

XAMPP: XAMPP-MySQL is not running.
XAMPP: XAMPP-ProFTPD is not running.
