I have recently installed Xammp onto my laptop which runs Kali Linux. The MySQL server & ProFTPD server both run fine.

The Application log looks like:

Starting Apache Web Server...
Exit code: 8
apache config test fails, aborting
httpd: Syntax error on line 136 of /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf: Cannot load modules/mod_ssl.so into server: /opt/lampp/modules/mod_ssl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any help?

How do I get the missing file?


I had the exact same issue on Ubuntu. I ended up uninstalling XAMPP 7.0.9 and installing 7.0.8 and now it works fine.

To uninstall:

cd /opt/lampp  
sudo ./uninstall
