Web Sharing is on error when starting Apache

Postby burgerga » 22. September 2011 20:38

I keep getting told I need to turn of web sharing when I try to start Apache. However web sharing is most definitely off. I've checked multiple times, tried cycling it on and off... nothing. XAMPP still tells me it's on. Any ideas?

I have the same problem, all sharing has been turned off in Preferences/Sharing. I've logged out of iCloud and MobileMe but no joy.

Any help or advice would be welcome?

When trying to run XAMPP from the terminal I get the following message in addition to the pop up.

2011-10-31 16:39:08.655 XAMPP Control[1472:1817] Error Domain=XAMPPErrorDomain Code=4 "Web Sharing is on!" UserInfo=0x1d46d0 {NSLocalizedRecoverySuggestion=XAMPP's Apache can not start while Web Sharing is on! Please go to System Preferences > Sharing and turn it off., NSLocalizedDescription=Web Sharing is on!}
2011-10-31 16:39:08.667 XAMPP Control[1472:1817] NSAlert is being used from a background thread, which is not safe. This is probably going to crash sometimes. Break on _NSAlertWarnUnsafeBackgroundThreadUsage to debug. This will be logged only once. This may break in the future.


There is no error logs in Console.

Hey, simple easy fix is to stop your Mac OS default apache server with following command:

sudo apachectl stop

It fixed this problem for me..


Cheers!!

Hello djnp!!

Thank you! Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!

I have been bashing my head against the wall for 2 days and I finally saw your suggestion and immediately XAMPP allowed Apache to run!

So thank you one more time for the solution!
