XAMPP Apache problem

Last Modified: 2012-08-16
I have XP. Xampp is installed & it was working perfectly with NetBeans. Then I added Wordpress & it worked ok, but now Xampp doesn't run with my PHP project.

Here is my normal process:

First I stop IIS. Then I open Xampp. I click the mySql Start button & the green "Running" button appears. I click on the Apache Start button & in a few seconds the green "Running" button appears.

Today, after clicking on the Apache Start button I don't get the green "Running" button.

I don't recall making any critical changes to xampp files when I put wordpress into the htdocs folder. But I'm stumped & need help.

Thank you.
