XAMPP Is Not Starting Apache Server Anymore

Aug 11, 2009

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 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.

Plesk Automation :: MySQL Server Not Starting Anymore - Failed To Restart Service

Jun 5, 2014

What could I fix by trying to start mysql server, recieve following errors:

plesk interface:

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

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.

from the console:

sudo service mysql start
start: Job failed to start

Cannot Start Xampp Apache

Jun 29, 2008

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.

Unable to generate the web server configuration file on the host <hxxxxxx.stratoserver.net> because of the following errors:

I was adding another apache node to the cluster. All the nodes have RHEL5 installed on it. I downloaded the source httpd-2.2.10 and compile it using commands:

make install

After it is compiled without any errors, when i am trying to start it it's giving me error.
# /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

httpd: Could not open configuration file /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Invalid argument

File exists at the said location. There is no permission issue also.
# ll /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

Kindly help in resolving the issue.

Is It Impossible To Lease A Dedicated Server Anymore

Apr 21, 2009

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?

Starting My Own Dedicated Server

Sep 27, 2008

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 mostly looking for Unmetered Servers. Like FDC, but their servers are too slow as i heard from some of my friends.

Any other servers that are unmetered and offer good speeds?

I want a shared 100mbit for the start, maybe i will upgrade later.

I currently have 10mbit unmetered, but thats not enough for filehosting sites.

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.

WAMP5 1.7.0 contains:Apache 2.2.4
PHP 5.2.1 + PECL
MySQL 5.0.27

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.

Using Wamp; Mysql Still Looking In C:xampp

Feb 6, 2008

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.


C:Documents and Settings[user]>C:wampmysqlinmysqld-nt --init-file=C:mysql-init.txt

Server Monitoring - Siteuptime Starting To Give False Alerts

Jun 26, 2008

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.
