Using Windows 7 and skype

Postby txoutlw » 18. January 2011 22:27

I am trying to start Apache on my windows 7 machine. I startes and then stops right away.
I checked ports and it says that port 80 is used by skype.
So I changed Apache to use port 8080 and it still will not stay running?
Any thoughts?
Is there a log somewhere to tell me why it is not staying running?

Change the port back to port 80 and then configure Skype to use ports other than port 80 and port 443 and this will get you moving in the right direction - don't forget to restart Apache after editing the httpd.conf file.

The log files are stored in \xampp\apache\logs\ and the error.log file will be the one you want, but if you follow the above procedure and reconfigure Skype then all should be fine.

Good luck.
