Xampp Control Panel - Error Message


Recommended Posts

Windows 7 SP1

2GB RAM

 

I followed the installation instructions in the bonus appendix to the book for XAMPP and installed the programs, scripts, etc on a new partition in the folder H:\XAMPP. When I open the XAMPP Control Panel I get the following message:

 

XAMPP Component Status Check failure [-2]

Current directory H:\xampp

Run this program from your XAMPP root directory.

 

I have checked the source of the file that runs the Control Panel and it is H:\XAMPP\xampp-control.exe which is in the root of the XAMPP directory.

 

The XAMPP Control Panel shows the following status:

 

(tick) Scv Apache Running

(tick) Scv MySql Running

(no tick) Scv FileZilla (not running)

(no tick) Scv Mercury (not running)

 

When I open XAMPP in my browser the Welcome page says "Congratuation you have successfully installed XAMPP on this system and the Status page shows:

 

MySQL database ACTIVATED

PHP ACTIVATED

Common Gateway Interface (CGI) ACTIVATED

Server Side Includes (SSI) ACTIVATED

SMTP Service DEACTIVATED

FTP Service DEACTIVATED

FTP Service DEACTIVATED

 

What is the problem with the installation that causes the error message?

 

One further problem, when I try to stop either the Apache or MySQL service in the Control Panel I get another error message which states:

 

This program must be run from the XAMPP root directory.

Busy....

ERROR: -1
