xamp Installation Problem

Postby anshubansal2000 » 20. December 2008 19:20

Hi,
I am trying to install XAMP on windows XP by using XAML windows installer. I also have ASP.NET on this machine alongwith IIS server. While installing XAMP, it shows an error message that port 80 is already in use so can't install apache server. While I try to install apache then it stopped automatically. Also I try to access defaut page of apache then it doesn't show up.

Any suggestions?? Help is appreciated.

Thanks

Stop IIS and you can start/install Apache.

They use both the same standard port for HTTP which is port 80. And 2 applications on the same port at the same time is not possible.

Hi Weidman,

Thanks for suggestion. Is it possible to install apache on some other port and then listen to the traffic on that such as 8080 or other.

Thought??

You can change the directive "Listen" in httpd.conf to what ever you want.
(BTW: You must also change the port for HTTPS in "httpd-ssl.conf".)
