I'm a long-term user of Apache, and more specifically these binaries from Apache Lounge, and i have always been very happy with that. For a not long time ago, i had to reinstall my Windows webserver due to a harddrive failure, and now i seem to have some problems getting ssl to work properly (using the latest 2.4.35 x64 version). I have already configured my vhosts as i want, and got php (7.2.10) to work as intended, but as soon as i try to load the mod_ssl module, the service refuses to start, and the error-log gives me nothing.

I compared an old backup of my config-files and i cannot see any major diffrience from the old server to this one. Besides the default loaded modules, i have also enabled the required mod_socache_shmcb, and the httpd-ssl.conf, containing my vhost for ssl page is included in httpd.conf. Spend some time with google and found out that it could be some problems with the cert itself, since i only use self-signed certificate i just deleted my old ones and created new with the same name on the same location, still same result.

As soon as i comment ( # ) the line where i include my httpd-ssl.conf, the service have no problem to start.

Thx

Windows Event Viewer?
httpd -t from the command prompt?

These are usually where you'll find start up problems especially in Event Viewer.

httpd -t will sometimes say "Syntax OK" but you know that's not correct since Apache will not start as a service.

As you mentioned, httpd -t gives me "Syntax OK", however the event viewer gave me more than the error-logs strange enough. Now at least i have something to look for but cant really understand the problem since it's pretty much the same config i have been using for years.

Code:

The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> (OS 10048)Normalt tillåts bara en användare för varje socketadress (protokoll/nätverkadress/port).  : AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:443     .



The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> (OS 10048)Normalt tillåts bara en användare för varje socketadress (protokoll/nätverkadress/port).  : AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443     



The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> AH00451: no listening sockets available, shutting down     .



The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> AH00015: Unable to open logs     .


EDIT: Problem solved. My issue was not related to Apache at all, a conflict with another program listening on port 443 on the same network. Thx anyways
