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
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
