Apache in Ampps cannot start after upgrade to Mavericks

After upgrade to Mavericks, Ampps doesn't ask for your password any more and you simply can not start Apache. MySql is fine. If you try start apache in terminal: bash /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/apachectl start you will get: (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80 (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down The trick is to use sudo bash sudo /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/apachectl start will get your Apache started, but you need use bash /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/apachectl stop to stop it. Then you can use automator to make this command as an application. Have fun!

Worked for me too. Just to be clear, it's "sudo bash /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/apachectl start". Not bash sudo bash ; ]
