I need help urgent plz

Hi Friends…

I am using windows 7 Ultimate…i installed xampp 1.6.1…but when start the Apache server in control panel its not at all working…it shows error like this…

Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
Check the “/xampp/apache/logs/error.log” file
and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

i dunno what to do…can anyone help me to recover this problem…

Thanks in advance…

The best thing will be to uninstall the xampp and install it again. but when you are installing it watch out for window security alert of unknown script, allow the script to continue.


Did you do what the error message suggests and check the error.log file?
If so, what did it say?

Why are you trying to install an older version of XAMPP to begin with? The current version is 1.8.1.

If you have Skype - turn it off. Or mess around it’s options and turn off usage of port 80. Skype is known to listen on this port.
