Used netstat to find out which process was using port 80 and 443, that was pid 3732. i've tried to find out what service that pid is but cant seem to find anything. Any ideas guys?
In English as this is an English only forum - run xampp-portcheck.exe in the xampp folder.
Usually Skype or IIS (Internet Information Service) Microsoft's web server that on some OSs runs by default at start up - AKA (also known as) World Wide Publishing and could be something like inetsrv.exe in the Task Manager.
Skype can be configured not to use port 80 and port 443 and IIS can be disabled from the Windows Control Panel.
