Apache not starting – Win32: Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1)


This usually happens when you do a fresh install of your system and reinstall LAMP.. then you copy/paste your backup configuration files. If you use vhosts (virtual hosts) you may get this error in Event viewer.

It happens because apache tries to access a file in a folder which doesn’t exists. For example,i had setup a virtual host with a custom error log files in a new folder called _logs. After I copied the backup site in the new location I thought I don’t need anymore the old log files so I deleted the whole _logs directory. After a restart I noticed apache wasn’t starting anymore.

    This error may also be caused by trying to load a dynamic shared object that has a problem…

    Also happens if another application is using port 80, eg. Skype
    (Tools, Options, Advanced, Connection: Uncheck “Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections”).

      • I love how you attempt to justify your being an apologist for a brutal theocratic terror supporting regime by comparing them to Texas. I think you will find there was a few differences between Texas and Afghanistan under the Taliban such as the US has a constitution guarranteeing certain key personal liberties like freedom of speech and religion. But who cares about those things so long as you are anitpim-erialistic quasi-leftist eh?

      • comentou em 1 de julho de 2009 às 12:41. Já usei manipulados. Mas gosto mais de ser meais independente. Gosto de achar meus produtos em qualquer lugar. Minha médica aprovou cada produto que eu uso. Ela não trabalha estritamente com manipulados. Quando preciso de algum tratamento mais específico com ácidos ou coisa parecida então vemos se é melhor comprar o de laboratório farmacêutico ou mandar manipular. Em geral prefiro os de laboratórios.Bjsss!!!!

    • That solved my problem too. Had to quit skype. This problem happened after installing Zend server so two apache servers are now installed

  3. I had this problem too. So I reported to my boss (who’s is Systems Engineer) and he fixed this problem changing the port 80 to another. This por 80 was used for another aplication, that was the origin of the problem.

    thanks man, it worked.

    A program that I didn’t expect that can use port 80 and cuase this error is teamviewer. To avoid this start teamviewer after apache.

    It could also be caused by some misspelling in your httpd.conf. Happened to me. Check with httpd -t.

    Can also be IIS server. I use multiple development scenarios (one for work, one for “recreation” 😉 ). For work I need IIS, at home I use Apache.

    To stop IIS server, run Command Prompt as admin, enter “iisreset /stop”, then try Apache again…
