Problem :

I want to install the Xampp win32-1.8.2 on Windows 8.1. But I get below message saying

" Because an activated user account User Account on your system some functions of XAMPP are possibly restricted."

I have already tried to change my user account control settings but still a same warning is there. And my APACHE does not start. I have also disabled the IIS but still, it is not at all working. What can I do?

Solution :

There are two things that you must check:

1.Ensure that the user account has the administrator privilege.

2.Disable the UAC (User Account Control) as it restricts the certain administrative function needed to run the web server.

To ensure that the user account has a administrator privilege, just run lusrmgr.msc from a Windows Start > Run menu to bring up your Local Users and Groups Windows. Now Double-click on the user account that appears under the Users, and verifies that it is the member of the Administrators.

To disable the UAC (as an administrator), from a Control Panel:

1.Simply type UAC in a search field in a upper right corner.

2.Click on the Change User Account Control settings in a search results.

3.Drag a slider down to the Never notify and click on OK.

Now open up a User Accounts window from a Control Panel. Click on a Turn User Account Control on or off option, and just un-check a checkbox.

Problem : When attempting to start the servers, Apache fails to start, and MAMP claims that my port ([::]:8888) is already in the use. I have tried virtually every way I know of determining what the process is using that port (as well as many of other solutions ... what(if anything) is really using my port, or somehow convince the MAMP that my port is not actually in use. Any suggestions on this?
