XAMPP Control Panel v3.2.1 ; Apache will not start

Postby atam236 » 21. February 2014 05:33

Hi, how do we configure XAMPP to use different port?

I have similar problem in Windows 8 and the process name for PID 4 is System.

Code: Select all
D'oh!

net stop was
and then another problem occurred like below.

I've been stuck for five days and not sure which solution to follow in the internet because I don't understand what the solutions actually do. I afraid it will make XAMPP become unstable.

Thx,

Hi atam236,

Please do not use unsolved threads of someone else to report your own issue

You want to use a HTTP Daemon so take care that you close the programs that are blocking the default ports.
That is the correct way, not changiing the default ports.

Execute the \xampp\apache_start.bat script and let us not what it responses.

There is already a process blocking port 80 so Apache can not bind this port
