Apache does not start in Vista Home Premium 32-bit

Postby easouza » 04. October 2009 13:04

I installed XAMPP 1.7.2 into c:\xampp in Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP1. Apache does not start. I did a port check and the results showed Service Apache (HTTP) Port 80 Status System

I checked the Apache log and found this:
(OS 10013)An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. : make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
(OS 10013)An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

This is not something I can reconfigure or shut down like Skype or Oracle. Is there anyway to configure Apache to use another port?

Try going to this topic viewtopic.php?p=134260#p134260 and following it through. When I tried to shut IIS down this way the application appeared to hang so I left it for 5-10 minutes then crahed it with Ctrl-Alt_delete. Despite this it must have shut it down as I can now start Apache successfully.

I resolved my problem by running Apache as a service. That seems to work just fine.
