Hello and I hope all is well (politeness),
I have GNS3 installed and I use it to work with ISOs for routers and imaging switches/etc. I noticed during my installation of XAMPP when Apache is attempting to start, it starts and shut down in a few seconds then it has errors. I read most of the post concerning this issue but all of the fixes don't seem to working. I did however use the update created and pasted the instructed files to the location listed but it didn't work either. I changed GNS3 ports setting to not cause a conflict but Apache won't start. I changed the UAC but to no avail. I do also run Virtual Pcs would this cause a problem? I am new to Apache & XMAPP so any help would be of great assistance. Also, will Apache work on port 8080? Please disregard this to any one who might have seen it earlier. I have resolved the problem. I will post a reply for those wondering how I got it done.
