I am just starting and have "successfully" downloaded XAMPP using the instructions from Appendix A. I am having a challenge starting Apache from the Conrol Panel. The following screen shot offers clues ...

My read on the problem I need to solve ...

Port 80 in use by "system"!

Any and all advice as to how to resolve this conflict is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hmmm... never seen that before.
I've never seen the red Xs in the Services column either.

All the same, it sounds like a port conflict, meaning that you'll have to change the port for one of the two programs trying to use it.
The following might be of assistance:

In general, if you do a Web search for "XAMPP port 80 in use" (without the quotes), you'll probably find an answer.
Good luck.

@HartleySan -- Thanks for the link. I used the following instructions to change the port ...

1. locate httpd.conf, example is D:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf
  • look for words “Listen 80″ and change into “Listen 8080″
  • look for words “ServerName localhost:80″ and change into “ServerName localhost:8080″
  • Save the file
2. locate httpd-ssl.conf, example is D:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf
  • look for words ““Listen 443″ and change into ““Listen 4499″
  • look for words “<VirtualHost _default_:443>″ and change into “<VirtualHost _default_:4499>″
  • look for words “ServerName localhost:443″ and change into “ServerName localhost:4499″
  • Save the file
3. then start the XAMPP control panel, should be worked,

4. if you want to access localhost, the new link is localhost:8080/, example you want open phpmyadmin, then http://localhost:8080/phpmyadmin/

My localhost is now ... http://localhost:8080/ ... which is fine with me. I'm up and running!! Thanks again.
