Description Axel 2010-03-17 20:11:55 UTC
After installing the latest XAMPP/Windows to "C:\Program Files (x86)" everything went fine, except for Apache, which did not run.

This is what has been logged to the Windows Event Log when trying to start Apache as a service.

    Protocol Name: System
    Source:        Service Control Manager
    Event ID:      7024
    Level:         Fehler
    The service "Apache2.2" was stopped due to following service specific error: Invalid function..
    Event XML:
    <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
        <Provider Name="Service Control Manager" Guid="{555908d1-a6d7-4695-8e1e-26931d2012f4}" EventSourceName="Service Control Manager" />
        <EventID Qualifiers="49152">7024</EventID>
        <TimeCreated SystemTime="2010-03-17T17:11:03.518774200Z" />

        <Security />
        <Data Name="param1">Apache2.2</Data>
        <Data Name="param2">%%1</Data>

This is the content from the error.log:

    Syntax error on line 505 of C:/Program Files (x86)/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
    SSLSessionCache: Invalid argument: size has to be >= 8192 bytes

It seems this is a known bug, because a workaround for this can be found at:


I couldn't find an existing bug in Bugzilla, so I'd like to bring this issue to your attention.
