port 80 blocked

Hi, I have just installed XAMPP on my windows 2000 pro machine, and when installing it stated that Apache can't start as port 80 is blocked...what does this mean and how do I unblock it?

You need to know which program block that port. There is a script (portcheck.bat or someone like that) to find out. Then you need to stop that programm, that block the port

Make sure your firewall isn't blocking port 80 . also 80% of ISP blocks port 80 and 21 for security.
