I've tried all of the solutions given in the post thus far, and I've searched the forums for other similar posts - nothing seems to work with my system.
I've looked at the error logs and this is what I get:
- Code: Select all
(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
I run a port check and it tells me "Process: System" is using port 80. This is further confirmed using the netstat command, which indicates PID 4 which is System.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I've had XAMPP running since I installed Windows 7 and I can't seem to find what part of the system is currently bound to port 80.
To confirm: Skype is not using port 80. IIS is not installed as far as I can tell. VMWare is disabled and not running.EDIT:
Immediately after posting this, I found the culprit. I had recently installed MS SQL Server 2008 Express. As part of this there is a service called: SQL Server Reporting Services. Make sure that all the wonderful new services that MS SQL Server 2008 use are manual starts... or don't bother installing it to start with.
Many thanks in advance,
