Please forgive me if I am asking a question that has been answered many time before but I have tried several searches of this forum without finding any relevant solution. I am totally new to the world of open source software, PHP, Apache, Perl, etc, and have only downloaded XAMPP for Windows to meet one very specific purpose. Any suggestions will therefore have to be spelled out in detail!
I had XAMPP running sucessfully on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC a couple of days ago but today Apache refuses to start. When I click on the Apache Start button in the XAMPP Control Panel the window at the bottom says 'Apache started'. However, the Start button does not change to a Stop button and my XAMPP-dependent application does not work. Note that I am running XAMPP as administrator.
I checked the Apache error.log file and found the following:
(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
How do I fix this?
In case it is relevant, I ran netstat -ano (as advised on another thread in this forum) and got the result that address 80 was listening on PID 4, whatever that may mean!
