    I wan to install WordPress locally on my pc/Windows XP. Running xampp-control the Apache switches off immediately, so I cannot use my localhostpage.
    Any recommendations?

    XP what? Home? Pro?
    Run the port-check file in the xampp directory?
    Tried the xampp forums?

    And make sure if it’s Pro that you’ve disabled windows’ own inbuilt server.

    Thanks a lot, it is solved and running!

    *EDITED* Awesome! Thank you! =)

    Can you please change the status of this to [Resolved] now.. =P That will let others know, that your problem is already taken care of.. =)

    This will also help save other’s time of coming in here, only to find out it’s [resolved] anyways, like me for example.. =P Thanks..=)


    Maybe they won’t see this, but worth a shot lol!

    And anamertens, if you check back here, please consider posting what you did to solve the problem….

    sorry, but how do i start a new topic, i’m looking for 10 minutes already and can’t find!? – sorry i just fount out!

    I realized I didn’t mention the solution:
    I ran the port check file and found out that the Apache (html) was taken by Skype, so I shut Skype down and everything went smoothly.
    Thanks again.
