Bart, in your XAMPP Control Panel there is a button Port Check
- give that a click.
Or if the Port Check won't work, click on the Shell
button and at the #
prompt type exactly this:netstat -a -n -o -p TCP
It should tell you the process that is using port 80 and 443, and other ports - see below for finding what process is using the ports by checking the PID (Process ID
) in the Processes
tab of the Task Manager

IIS would usually be intserv.exe (internet server or Internet Information Server - IIS
) so look in the Task Manager
if it is running by right clicking on the TaskBar
and select Task Manager
from the menu then Processes
tab and look for intserv.exe
and if you find it then you will have to disable it in your Windows Control Panel.
BTW Skype can be configured not to use port 80 and 443 so you have the best of both worlds - Skype and your web server.
