IIS running how to stop?

Postby jerryyo » 13. December 2006 16:29

I am trying to start the Apache server but it will not start due to another server running. That server is IIS. Stopping IIS will result in no email and other services that I need. I put XAMPP on a different drive and am at a loss. How can this be overcome...or can it? Thank you!

IIS uses port 80 by default so you need to change either its listening port ( I have no idea how to do this in IIS - not installed on my PC) or change the listening port in XAMPP.

In XAMPP open xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file in your text editor (example - notepad).

Find this line:
Listen 80

change it to another number like 8080 for example:
Listen 8080

Save the file and restart Apache.

All your addresses that use the XAMPP server now must include :8080 for example:
http://localhost:8080/

Note - backup any conf or ini files before editing so it is easy to revert to the original if you make any typos that prevent Apache from starting.
