This is my first-ever Web-server installation, and it was not successful. I downloaded and installed the XAMPP 1.7.2 code onto my Windows XP machine, which seemed to go fine. However, I am unable to start either Apache or MySql from either the XAMPP Control Panel or the command line. I checked the Apache error log, and got this:
- (OS 10013)An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. : make_sock: unable to listen for connections on address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Again, I'm a newbie, but I'm wondering whether the problem has to do with the address shown in the error message -- my understanding was that it should be 127.0.0.1.
I would greatly appreciate any help!
