So I've been trying to install XAMPP and run it on my Windows Server 2016 environment, and the version of Windows Server I'm on seems to have a whole bunch of strange security settings. So, upon trying to install XAMPP I was greeted with an error message saying "Because an activated user account User Account on your system some functions of XAMPP are possibly restricted." So, I tried disabling the UAC settings as it suggested, but I still got the error. I continued with the install and now I'm getting a whole bunch of errors while trying to run apache, like this:

4:27:47 PM  [Apache]    Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
4:27:47 PM  [Apache]    This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, 
4:27:47 PM  [Apache]    improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
4:27:47 PM  [Apache]    Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
4:27:47 PM  [Apache]    the Windows Event Viewer for more clues

I'm sure it's the weird security settings this machine has. Is there some way I can check and disable some of these security features? They're really quite annoying and getting in the way.

EDIT Forgot to include error.log

And another thing, my Arma 3 server is having some troubles connecting to my database. Maybe this has something to do with the permissions as well?

  • You received an error but I can’t tell if you provided us that error or not, which isn’t good, because now I just sit here wondering “what’s the error?” – Ramhound Nov 15 '17 at 0:39
  • I included the error log for apache. Idk what any of it means tho – Freeman Nov 15 '17 at 0:47
  • I agree that the question could be clearer, but the first line of the first preformatted (code) clock says “Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.”, so that is probably the OP’s primary concern. – Scott Nov 15 '17 at 0:50
  • It also says “check the Windows Event Viewer” for more information. Fix your syntax error in your php.ini file – Ramhound Nov 15 '17 at 1:46
