Once, I've stoped Apache in XAMPP by using XAMPP Control Panel.
Then, I've tried to start Apache. But it isn't starting.
I've already closed Skype, TeamWeaver.
Help me guys. I've to take so many backups in phpmyadmin :(
1. Open xampp directory
2. Locate crash.txt sometimes you will have a lot of these files.
3. Read the latest
force stop and restart
force stop: in the xampp directory find the xampp_stop.exe this is the one with the icon. Click on the icon...wait for the command prompt to disappear.
force start: If the above procedure has been sucessful, click on the xampp_start.exe. Again this is the one with the icon. Wait for the command prompt to appear. Minimize the command prompt and do not close.
If using the force start, you are bypassing the xampp control panel. Some versions of xampp are known to have bugs in it, but not 100% can be blame to xampp.
In newer versions of windows, you may want to run the xampp as administrator or whatever is equivalent to root in windows..
Sometimes, when windows security prompt appeared asking you for the permission if apache2 and mysql are allowed to run, you probably missed it.
