Uniform Server won't start

Recommended Posts

I have installed my Uniform Server on my Windows XP Pro. The first time I installed it to use with Joomla, it worked great. Everything to perfection.

 

I have started to develop the site with joomla and SUDENLY, out of nowhere I CANNOT start the Uniform Server anylonger.

 

I click on the Disk Start.vbs, it prompts me to the drive to start, I select the default W and when I look at the drive in the Windows Explorer, it does NOT start the drive. I just creates an icon with a red interrogation mark and does not start anything on the W drive.

 

It opens the W:\home\admin\www\redirect.html and says that cannot find the page. Of course it will not, since it did not start the w drive.

 

Any clues? I tried everything... looked at all the posts, but could not find what to do. Any help will be very well appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Augusto

I have done a further analisys on this... I executed step by step of the server_start.bat file. Everything worked fine until it executed this comand line:

 

W:\usr\local\php>start w:\home\admin\program\uniserv.exe "w:\usr\local\apache2\bin\Apache.exe -f \usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf -d \usr\local\apache2\." "w:\home\admin\program\close.bat w"

 

I presume it is starting the uniserv.exe with Apache. After this line the W drive desapear and it won't work anylonger.

 

NOTE: I don't even have IIS installed on my computer.

 

Any help I can get is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Augusto

Is Skype running on your PC or anything blocking port 80?

 

That line is to start Apache itself.

 

I have stoped Skype, MSN and everything possible. If I start Appache in the Appache server monitor, it starts fine.

 

This ONLY starts Appache? If I start with the Server Monitor, will it have any problem?

Well, I downloaded the following application: Active Ports. It found the beast that was using PORT 80. Indeed, I had Skype running w/o knowing that it was running. Killed the process and it all worked fine.

 

Thanks for the help.

I've got the same issue, and ive used ActivePort to try and diagnose the problem but the information does not provide me enough to figure out what program is blocking access to my local port. I need help, It won't start it keeps reloading and stopping. It started doing this yesturday, and not sure why.

Hi,

That line is to start Apache itself.

I've spent the last 3 hours rebooting the machine, reinstalling uniform server, testing, retesting when I logged onto the forum and found this!

 

I recently started using skype and it happened to be running when I was trying to start uniform server! Arggh!

 

Many thanks

Alan
