What exactly indicates that it is de-activated?
I know it is possible to stop-start Apache and stop-start MySQL and it is possible to switch between PHP versions. But De-activate!

Most of the control programs are in this folder under Xampp
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. \\Apache\xampp
With programs you double click to start, such as
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. xampp-control.exe
But I suspect it is a setting in a config file.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. \\Apache\xampp\php\php.ini
There are a couple more ini files I can't quite remember where

I suspect he means Apache is not turned on.

If your apache service is running that's means php is activated. problem is, you are reviewing status link in https://yourip. its already mentioned that ssl will not perfectly show the status of all modules. open your apache status page without ssl i.e. http://yourip.

did you try typing in your url the url like: localhost/yoursystemfolder/page.php ?
if this will not work check and run the appache and sql in your xampp control pannel, then try to put the url for your system (localhost/yourfolder/yourpage.php).

Much better to post the error you have been encountered to identify the cause of your factual problem.
