    Hey, i've been experience some issues with UniForm Server.

    It all started when I moved my UniServer File from C: to Dropbox, so I could share the file with a friend, so that we easily could edit it between us. But the problem acqured when I was going to start and run the Servers, they were unable to load. I rebooted the computer in hope of any sort of chance that the problem would fix but it never did. All it says is "Unable to start Apache (and MySql) Server"...


    Now what I've tried is to rebooting, and also moving it back to C:

    It also sometimes happens that either mysql or apache works, but the other don't.

    A important thing to add I think is that I redownload a new Uniform server, and it all worked correctly, so I think it's something wrong inside the Uniform servers, it might be something my friend did when he changed in www?



    I really appreciate all help that I can get!


    Sincerely,
    Godsaft

    If you want to share files with a friend the best thing to do is to shave the files inside of the www folder, not the entire uni server folder.

    Also, there are a number of reasons as to why apache was unable to start, could be that one of its ports are already being used(skype uses port 80 and 443 for ex.)

    Download uniserver and place it in a directory with no spaces and tell your friends to do the same, share only the contents of the www folder.

    To save what you have done just backup the www folder.

    In config.php write wrong mysql connection details. And visit the page. An error message will appear along with installation instructions.
