Apache problem even when port is 81(free) in httpd.conf

Postby Ayesha » 14. March 2008 02:21

Hi:
I have been trying to fix this issue for the last 4 hours and still didnt get anywhere...
I installed and in XAMPP Control panel it shows that APACHE is on Port 80.
However, it fails to start. I have turned off my Firewall and Netstat.txt shows that the local Address for inetinfo.exe is 0.0.0.0:80... This means that port 80 is already used up right..

I used xampp-portcheck on Dos which showed that Service Apache<webDAV> at Port 81 is free

In my C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf I changed the following:
Listen 80 to
Listen 81
and
ServerName localhost:80 to
ServerName localhost:81

So now this means that Apache should look for port 81... As far as I can see this port is not being used (according Netstat.txt).

After saving the file doing this and restarting my computer, XAMPP control panel still shows Apache to be on Port 80 and it fails to start.

On Dos when I c:\xampp>apache_start
I get the following
Apache 2 is starting ...
Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port
is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

What do I do now?

Thanks in Advance

XAMPP control panel still shows Apache to be on Port 80

AFAIK the CP only checks port 80.

is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443

Port 443 is used for SSL (httpd-ssl.conf).

that the local Address for inetinfo.exe

That's the IIS (Microsoft Internet Information Service) which is also working on port 443.

Hi,

I have the same problem, and in the control panel it says Directory Mismatch, now I have deleted Xampp and reinstalled it, but it still gives the same problem, how to solve this?

I have seen the post of Wiedmann and I understand a little bit the problem, but I dont know how to solve this.

What would be the best solution?

Thanks.
