Apache Stopped Unexpectedly

Solutions 1: Stop Conflicting Program And Start XAMPP Apache Server If you carefully read this XAMPP message, you’ll see they give a solution – to uninstall/disable or reconfigure the blocking program. For example most common programs for Apache not starting is Skype. If that is the case quit/stop Skype and run Apache and see. Open the XAMPP control panel. Click on Config Then, go into Apache httpd.conf file. Open it with a text editor. Search for '80' (Do Ctrl + F and find all of them. Replace it with 8080 or 4040 or 4000 ). And restart XAMPP. When I try to start my Apache server in the XAMPP Control Panel, I get the following errors: 11:23:54 AM Apache Attempting to start Apache app. 11:23:54 AM Apache Status change detected: running 11:23:55 AM Apache Status change detected: stopped 11:23:55 AM Apache Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly. 11:23:55 AM Apache This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, 11:23.

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - Version: 2008 R2


This can happen on any version but this issue was noted on an Oracle Forms & Reports environment where OPMN is managing system components.
First symptom is that Apache.exe process hangs after two weeks approximately.

Apache.exe stops and the MS Services (even though shows running) fails with error : 1053 when attempted to be stopped

Apache Stopped Unexpectedly Working

I’ve just upgraded to windows 10 and found that XAMPP/WAMP Apache won’t start anymore for some reasons. It will simply attempt to start but then fail and ask the user to check the Apache error logs.
The “culprit” or should I say, reason, is because windows 10 comes with a service known as World Wide Web Publishing Service (I will just call it WWWPS for short) which is started automatically when windows starts and uses port 80 by default. Port 80 is what Apache in XAMPP/WAMP uses by default as well, and hence why the error above since port 80 has already been taken by WWWPS.


So the solution is pretty simple:
1. Run Command Prompt and type services.msc, then click OK.

2. Scroll To World Wide Web Publishing Service. Note that the Status should say that it is Running.

3. Double Click on that row. Homebrew synology. Change the Startup type from Automatic to Manual. Next, click on Stop to stop the WWWPS service. Don’t worry, unless you’re running some software that depends on the Microsoft IIS Web Server, you should be fine.

4. Now, try to start Apache again.

Yup, that’s all and it should work. Please leave a comment if this helps or you have other suggestions.
