Apache doesn't start, could not bind to address

Postby Liquid » 26. April 2008 20:35

Hi, I've installed XAMPP with the basic installer, but IIS is running on port 80 and 443 already. I searched around and the basic solution for this seems to be changing Listen 80 to Listen in the httpd.conf file, as well as uncommenting modrewrite.so. Well I have done that, but the problem still persists. The original error message was:

(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port)
is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

After I had changed Listen 80 to Listen I got the same error except it will say it cannot bind to instead. What should I do next?

Thank you.

Edit: Not sure if this is the right way to do it, but I commented out Listen 443 in the httpd-ssl.conf file and not it works! 8)
