You get a message like this, I would suggest you take a look at the apache error logs.

Little bit of a tip for you all. BEFORE you install Apache try typing the url: http://localhost/ into a webbrowser. See if it brings up anything.

I got this problem because some crappy television program guide that came with my tv tuner card installed itself as a webservice, and was already binding itself to port 80. Seeing as how I never used it, uninstalling it fixed the problem.

Hope this helps someone.

-Go to start then run, type services.msc.
-Find apache service on the right pane "apache2.2" or something close to that.
-Right click and go to properties.
- Go to general tab.
- Look at " Path to executable:"
- Move your apache folder (in xampp folder or something like that) to where the above path direct it to. Create folders if you have to. Mine i had to create "apachefrie nds" and "xampp" folders at "c:\apachefrien ds\xampp\" and then paste Mysql and Apache folders in it . If your mysql starts properly , then there is no need to move the folder mysql from your xampp installation folder.

NB:
This is a rather quick and mixing up your system solution BUT its because xampp was installed after WAMP was installed and then WAMP uninstalled when xampp wa already installed. hope you get the idea.

Good luck:

www.webmaster, was suggested that this ng could be a better place.] I've updated my test server to handle if-modified-since. I've noticed that the (old copies I run of) IE and Netscape seem never to send if-modified-since. But the strange thing is that Opera sends if-modified-since but when I reply with "HTTP/1.0 304 Not Modified" it is not refreshing the screen from its cache, it is leaving the screen blank.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
