Apache is not starting


Problem: Apache (bundled with XAMPP) started and died with out any error log output (in Apache error_log file).  All there is are two lines in XAMPP control panel:

=====
Busy...
Apache started [Port 80]
Busy...
Apache started [Port 80]
...
====

Any suggestion on how to fix this?

Is iis running? that's usually caused by something else already listening on port 80.

jeremycrussell, thanks fr the link.  I downloaded and installed it. Found nothing running on port 80.

I am wondering why there is no error logged.

Apache started without problem after reboot the machine...
Not sure what I did after the previous reboot that followed Django installation this morning.  What ever it is, it confused Apache somehow.

The problem resolved after reboot.  Responses were useful and informative.
