WAMP - Apache service doesn't start

Recommended Posts

Good morning, I've had this problem about a year ago: my service, for an unknown reason, stopped running (on my testing server). I'm running wamp 1.6.3 and it's not starting for me. I went to services in the control panel and tried to manually start it. no luck. A year back, I had to end up [b]reinstalling windows[/b] after uninstalling and reinstalling several times to get it to run. Why is it that after uninstalling and reinstalling the service, it still won't run? Can anyone tell me a solution that would save me the trouble of not having to reboot?

Any insight, suggestions and links to tutorials or documentation will be greatly appreciated...THANKS  ;D

What is the error message that displays when you try to start up?

You probably have to restart the machine though, especially if you installed and reinstalled a service.  Windows usually requires that you restart after messing with the services. ;)

backup your www file, uninstall your current wamp version, and download/install WAMP5.  The wamp version you have is a bit buggy.  WAMP5 is a bit more stable ;)
