Process is yellow for Apache

Postby matthew1246 » 27. January 2013 07:23

Hello. Please help me.
Apache starts up yellow for process id in Xampp.

I get the following message in error.log for Apache:

I assume it is core:warn error message but I've deleted httpd.pid and it still shows yellow message for pid.

Yellow means that only one of the two apache processes has started. This can happen by way of race condition if the start/stop button is pressed rapidly. I typically see this is there is an old Apache process still running. After stopping Apache in the control panel, open your Task Manager (Right-click your Windows Toolbar > Start Task Manager), go to the Processes tab, and kill any leftover httpd.exe entries.

Thanks for the reply. I've noticed that Xampp shows yellow for all new installations
when starting up first apache process and waiting for second process to start.
This is a logic bug made by the programmer. Can anyone fix this please?

Hello,

I am the Control Panel dev. I am not aware of any such issue with it and it has not been reported by anyone else.

1. Could you post the entire log window of the Control Panel when you start it
2. Could you grab the latest control panel from my signature
