    Angry Installed XAMMP and it stopped working

    I am a newbie trying to practice and learn PHP/MySQL.
    I installed XAMMP and spent some time exploring it. Then I xed out of the program.. without hitting quit. Now it doesn't work.
    Iget this messag for Apache and SQL:


    Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
    6:48:03 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,

    It did have a message about me running it without permissions, too. You are not running with administrator rights! This will work for
    6:44:22 PM [main] most application stuff but whenever you do something with services
    6:44:22 PM [main] there will be a security dialogue or things will break! So think
    6:44:22 PM [main] about running this application with administrator rights!
    6:44:22 PM [main] XAMPP Installation Directory: "c:\program files\xampp\"
    6:44:22 PM [main] WARNING: Your install directory contains spaces. This may break programs/scripts



    But It was running fine and the ADMIN button was not highlighted for me to change anything.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    I ran into the same exact issue recently. I ended up reinstalling xampp and the problem went away.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.

    It's not recommended to install XAMPP in the "C:\program files" directory because the space has historically caused issues.

    Instead, reinstall it at "c:\xampp".

    That is where I installed it initially. Though after uninstalling and installing it again the problem went away.
