I just bought a Joomla template and downloaded the Joomla 2.5.8 package and wanted to see how it all works, so I downloaded XAMPP hoping to first configure the entire website offline.
Long story short: I created a map called Joomla in xampp/htdocs, I start the XAMPP control panel but I can't get Apache to work: Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
Code: Select all
13:38:57 [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
13:38:57 [Apache] Status change detected: running
13:38:57 [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
13:38:57 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
13:38:57 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
13:38:57 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
13:38:57 [Apache] Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
13:38:57 [Apache] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
I have unchecked the port 88 in Skype and even closed Skype entirely... What can be the problem here?
PS: I'm using Windows 7 and MySQL seems to work fine, the User Account Control settings UAC are set to 'never notify'.
