Re: Apache service fails to start
In my opinion, xampp is JUNK. Just too many problems. Tried it, and threw it in the trash.
If you want a good server, try Wamp5 server. It's got everything needed to get you up and running with a server (Apache, MySql, MySql Lite, PHPMyAdmin), and everything works very well with ZenCart.
You can get it here: http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php
You WON'T be disappointed.
