Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
8:59:47 PM [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
8:59:47 PM [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
8:59:47 PM [Apache] Check the "/xampp/apache/logs/error.log" file
8:59:47 PM [Apache] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

important because an activted user account control (uac) on your system some
functions of xampp are possibly restricted. with uac please avoid to install
xampp to c:\program files (x86) missing write permissions). or deactivate uac
with msconfig after this setup.

this was the pop up i received directly after installing it so i changed the uac settings under msconfig

Ok, so your port is correct...basically port 80 is for web servers. Are you sure you are not running IIS on the same port?

Well, try out the following steps.

Step 1. download xampp server to run php and mysql from the below link.

http://www.apachefri...pp-windows.html

1) Download the zip,
2) Unzip and place in C:
3) Open c/xampp/xampp_controll.exe
4) Start Mysql, Apache
5) Open browser
6) Type http://127.0.0.1 (xampp default page opens)
7) Successfully installed xampp server

Step 2. Download fresh copy of cakephp 1.3 and unzip and place it in C:\xampp\htdocs

In your main url, you need to type...

http://localhost/your_foldername/program_name.php


Hope this works...and one more thing...please call me Raghav and not by my surname :)

Edit: Haha...sometimes these mistakes occur...glad you could solve the problem :)

Raghav

This issue has nothing to do with php. Moving to web hosting & servers.
