[Conflict Warning] Apache and Jungledisk Monitor

Postby smashingred » 14. January 2008 13:44

I had wondered why I was unable to restart Apache without restarting my computer.

I ran xampp-portcheck.exe and found that C:\Program Files\JungleDisk\junglediskmonitor.exe was using port 80.

JungleDisk is a connector tool for Amazon Web Services S3 (Simple Storage Solution) that I use for remote backup.

Apache would load fine on restart because it would bind to 0.0.0.0:80 before junglediskmonitor was loaded but if I shutdown Apache either via the XAMPP control panel or using apache_stop.bat junglediskmonitor.exe would bind to port 80 and I would no longer be able to restart it.

I found the recommended workaround at the JungleDisk forums but there is no permanent fix as of yet.

What I ended up doing was changing the httpd.conf to bind to 127.0.0.1:80 instead of just to any IP (0.0.0.0). This seems to have taken care of it. That being said, I don't know what you would need to do if you need remote access to the server.

Any suggestions welcome.

Cheers,

Jay

Change all references to port 80 in the httpd.conf file to port 8080 for example.

Listen 80 -> Listen 8080
ServerName localhost:80 -> ServerName localhost:8080

Save the file and restart Apache to have the changes recognized and always make a backup of conf or ini files before editing.

Then you can use this address to access XAMPP:
http://localhost:8080

Failing that is it not possible to change the port that your software listens on in their configuration files or registry settings?

I am wondering why your software is using port 80 in the first place but I am not familiar with it?
Advanced Options

* If for any reason the "My Jungle Disk" shortcut is not available on Windows 2000/XP or does not work, you can create a new one by going to Start->My Network Places, then selecting "Add Network Place". Select "Choose another network location" and enter http://localhost:2667/ for the address.
* Jungle Disk natively supports mapping your Jungle Disk to a local drive letter. For more information, see the Drive Mapping page.
* You also can use 3rd party DAV clients such as WebDrive to map your Jungle Disk to a local drive letter. When configuring 3rd party tools, you should use the address: http://localhost:2667/
* If you need to reconfigure Jungle Disk, just right-click on the system tray icon and select Configure.
