Im starting a new topic since I have no idea how I would go about searching for this. It is to obscure for me to understand.
If I am connected to a wireless router(that is connected to the internet) I am not able to start
Apache or FTP from the Xamp control panel but I am able to start MySQL.
When I try to start Apache or FTP I get a pop up box with no text or error message in it and an OK button.
If I turn my wireless connection off I am again able to start Apache and FTP but MySQL takes an unusually
long time to start and sometimes just hangs in the "starting" position.
What I have tried:
Restarting: The same thing happens even after restarting
Installing a separate instance of Xamp: The same symptoms in the same situations occur which rules out something funky
with the php.ini file or similar.
What I have observed:
Even after freshly restarting Ive noticed that 5-6 instances of httpd are running. All identical processes.
At this point it is just a bit of a pain since Ive found the work around(disconnecting from the internet) but something
is not right. This just started over night and other then installing some components, modules, plugins, etc into the
Joomla! site Im building I made not deliberate changes to anything.
Any thoughts? The pop up box's with nothing in them is the most confusing part about all this
