Install/configure problems - XAMPP 1.8.1 VC9, 64-bit Win 7

Postby jim.reynolds » 24. November 2012 04:56

I am running the 64-bit version of Windows 7. I installed XAMPP but I get a lot of error messages about port conflicts. More to the point, my installation does not work. I get error messages that I do not have admin rights - this is incorrect. However, I also get many warnings about port conflicts - port 80, 443, etc.

I have attached two screenshots of error messages. If anyone can help to resolve these, I am very grateful. I expect it's a matter of setting ports to listen on different settings but I am not skilled enough to determine.

Did you run the XAMPP control panel with "rightclick => run as Administrator"?
Windows 7 uses a new User Account Control (UAC) which restricted even Administrator users

It seems you are already running Apache and MySQL from another installation!?
Are they really needed? If not you could simply stop them and unregister their services.

best wishes,

Well that was simple - many thanks! I didn't know about the right-click 'Run as admin.' XAMPP control panel is much happier (see screen capture) and my Netbeans IDE is now working.

Although it's working, I still see some messages about Apache and MySQL already running on ports 80, 443, and 3306. Can you tell me how to check that, how to change it, stop it, and how to determine what application might be using it?

Blue text is not an error message, it is just an information message. It is just telling you that those XAMPP modules for the current installation were already running when the control panel started. If a different XAMPP installation or other applications were using those ports, it you display an error in red text and not let you start them.
