MAMP Apache only starting in PRO version, normal MAMP fails

Post by Shadow0013 »

Hi there.

I have downloaded MAMP 4.2.0 2.23973 2 days ago, the only change I made, is I installed it in C:\Web_Development\MAMP, and during the installation, I selected to install MAMP PRO too, which is in C:\Web_Development\MAMPPRO. However, first time I did the installation, I unselected MAMPPRO, and same error messages happened, so I doubt it was the fault of that.

At first I opened the ordinary MAMP, clicked the start server button, and faced the problem of not being able to start Apache. Then, out of spite, I started my trial of the PRO version, and let be amazed, it worked!

This is my apache_error.log file that regular MAMP produces:

So, how the hell can that be? I would love if someone could help me with this, because the trial only last a month, after that, I am EFFED.
Again, if I start MAMPPRO, everything works properly, if I start MAMP, then the Apache green indicator flashes green for 1 second, then it stops. It doesn't reach the point where it would even begin to start MySQL.

Looking forward to your answers guys.
Thank you for your time in advance :)
