    Re: XAMPP, Apache - Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly

    Here you go:


    If Skype is installed on your machine, then follow following steps:
    Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection.

    Disable the "Use port 80 and 443 for alternatives for incoming connections"

    Sign Out and Close all Skype windows. Then restart your Apache Server.




    OR

    Change the port of Apache Server , by default it is "80", you can change to "82"
    same changes needed in config file "httpd.conf"
