I installed XAMPP a few weeks ago and had a php website working on my localhost – all worked fine no probs. To do this I had to stop my IIS server as this was also using port:80 which is what XAMPP is set to use as default. Now for some reason when I started IIS again a few days ago to do some asp development work and then stopped it again, the apache server would not start even though I’ve definitely stopped IIS. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing XAMPP, but it still won’t start. I tried running the apache_start.bat from the command line and I got the following error message:
"An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its
access permissions": make_sock: unable to listen for connections on address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down
Apache could not be started
If I try and start Apache from the XAMPP control panel it just says Apache:stopped and the message in the bottom window is ERROR: Apache service not started [-1]
I was just wondering if you had come across this problem before? If yes, how did you resolve it? Someone mentioned changing the port, but being a bit new to apache and XAMPP I’m not really sure what would need to change in what config files.
What could I fix by trying to start mysql server, recieve following errors:
Code: Failed to restart the "mysql" service. Cannot start/stop/restart service: Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service mysql restart Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities, e.g. stop mysql ; start mysql. The restart(8) utility is also available. start: Job failed to start
from the console:
Code: sudo service mysql start start: Job failed to start
Code: mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) output of plesk_11.5.30_reset_instance_data.log:

that is my error message I have changed skype's port from using port 80 and also uninstalled IIS from microsoft I have only installed xampp on its own without wamp server so that they dont conflict.
I have a vps with cheapvps.co.uk.their service is great. I have used it for one month without any problems. but today I noticed that I can not access my vps through web browser. it gave me this error : Connection actively refused by the server
after contacting support it was clear for me that the problem is that xampp apache is not running. and support said that as my vps is unmanaged they can not help me right now.
when I enter this command : /opt/lampp/lampp startapache
I see this message : XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
and then nothing happens and apache does not start.
I completely removed Xampp and reinstalled it. then when I try to start xamp apache it says :
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)... XAMPP: Error 1! Couldn't start Apache! XAMPP: Starting diagnose... XAMPP: Make the httpd.conf fit your system. XAMPP: Next try... XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...
I do not know what to do with httpd.conf and I dont know where exactly it is.
I have XAMPP server which works fine. When I wanted to load webpages through my lan network it said I need to edit httpd-xampp.conf. When I try to load from internet there is no connection at all. I changed httpd-xampp.conf from this
<LocationMatch "^/(?i:(?:xampp|security|licenses|phpmyadmin|webalizer|server-status|server-info))"> Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.0/8 ErrorDocument 403 /error/HTTP_XAMPP_FORBIDDEN.html.var </LocationMatch>
I use Windows 7, running Apache VC10 in the XAMPP environment. It worked well, I am a newbie, it runned smoothly to programe a brief static page. Now I have everytime this logerror... I didn't change anything in the files and scripts of my apache folder...

I've updated to Apache 2.4.10 from 2.4.9 and all of a sudden my pages don't load anymore.Previously I had this issue rarely and closing the PHP-cgi.exe processes fixed it.But since the update the issue happens almost constantly.
I am installing xampp 1.8.2 for windows. My OS is win7. When installation is successfully done, I tried to start apache. But it says:

Last week I was traveling, and we had problems with one of our fairly critical mail servers, problems I really did not want to try to resolve from airport or hotel Internet in South America. So I decide to just lease a clean dedicated server, and setup mail there, and bump over the DNS. Easy, right?
So I pick a hosting company, one that advertises 1 Hour Setups, for obvious reasons, we are losing mail.
I sign up for a $69.99 Linux Dedicated Server, and pay a $50 setup fee, they charge my credit card. Then at the end of the process, I am greeted with a demand to fill out and fax this Service Order, with my CC info on it. Needless to say, I didn’t have access to a fax machine, or scanner.
So I blow another $35.00 on eFax and fill the damn form out in Photoshop, a complete pain in the ass to buy a cheap server. I fax it to the hosting company, and don’t hear from them again. I contact their Live chat support, and they tell me it takes 24 to 48 hours for the account verification process by the sales department, before my 1-hour setup starts.
And then 24 hours later, I get an email from the hosting company, requesting a copy of my credit card, photo ID, and a utility bill for my home address. Impossible for me at the time, so I cancel the order.
And then…yes, it gets better, they tell me they can’t refund my credit card for 3 to 5 days, with some nonsense about their company policy.
This would have been a colossal pain in the ass if I had been sitting at my office, with my full staff at my disposal, but while traveling it was simply impossible. I understand fraud prevention, and charge backs, my company takes credit cards as well…but we do not make it so hard on our customers to spend money with us that they simply take their business elsewhere, just to prevent a possible chargeback.
Ironically enough, I am probably going to have to call my bank today and file a chargeback, as I have not seen my refund from this horrible excuse for a hosting company.
Are there any companies out there that have a clean and easy setup process that do not require a stack of paperwork and the need of a fax machine and scanner to rent a server?
I have seen many people who run and maintain their own dedicated/servers, now i am thinking of having one of my own. Ive done some research and know the basics in terms of what to install and the hardware side of things.
If i run it from home on a very good PC how can i allocate bandwidth from people such as "The Planet" etc.. will i be able to pay for what i use only instead of paying a very high lump sum cooperate price, as i will be starting off new and experimenting things.
I would ideally want to run and host game servers. If you think the above wont suffice then what company could i approach in terms of getting me off the floor without having to pay a lot of money before im fully established?
I am determining the best local server solutions for my scenario: Windows XP Home SP2. And run the os CMS Typo3 locally.
Like most, I figured I'd have to install Apache, MySQL and phpMyAdmin one at a time. But it took me an hour just to find if this was possible for XP Home. And I am hesitant to go down the same frustrating road I see so many others have. I'd prefer to invest my time learning my CMS, not the server.
Then I see many helpful posts recommending either WAMP5 or XAMPP. Please, tell us what you prefer? Maybe you can tell us why (PLEASE include your OS). I looked all over for a discussion about it, and didn't find one. Here's one now for all to view and take from.
And the larger XAMPP 1.6.0a contains:Apache HTTPD 2.2.4, MySQL 5.0.33, PHP 5.2.1 + 4.4.5 + PEAR + Switch, Openssl 0.9.8d, phpMyAdmin 2.9.2, XAMPP Control Panel 2.4, Webalizer 2.01-10, Mercury Mail Transport System für Win32 und NetWare Systems v4.01a, FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.22, SQLite 2.8.15, ADODB 4.93a, Zend Optimizer 3.2.2, XAMPP Security.
I'm trying to install Joomla on my home server, and it requires mysql to have a password for security. Since nothing of my server is anywhere on the net, I never bothered to set a pass (yeah, I should have anyway).
Google led me to this article on the mysql forums, which worked up until it tried to initialize mysql (or whatever the command does, I'm guessing initialize). It's trying to look for the xampp folder that I had installed and uninstalled long before.
Being using the free version of siteuptime.com but this month alone i have had so far 3 false alerts reported, i am always in the putty and does not get interrupted, and i am sure i am around on the site too while supposedly siteuptime reports down (i am guessing firewall blocks their server ip for w/e reason). So am wondering is there any really good public tracking site out there which can do public reports more accurately and not kak out on me?
Whats your experience with siteuptime for monitoring if any ? Sometimes it works "ok" other times its just off the charts.
