I am very new to all of this. I'm thrilled that I can use XAMPP to create a local host, however, I have been trying for days now to get it installed and keep coming up with the same problem: when I click on the XAMPP Control panel -- this time I tried lite to see if that would make a difference -- MySQL runs, FileZilla runs, but Apache won't start. On another forum I was told it had something to do with Port 80.
Could someone tell me how to locate port 80 and fix it so that I can get Apache running? As added background, if it helps, I did have Skye at one point, but deleted it because it was slowing down my computer. Just found the XAMPP port check icon in the XAMPP folder and next to Port 80 it says: C:\Program Files\XAMPP\appache\bin\apache.exe . I don't know if that helps at all.
I appreciate your help. Thanks!
