Unable to access http://localhost

Postby marvolo1300 » 15. July 2011 23:47

Hi,

My problem is that httpd.exe using alot of CPU and also I am unable to access http://localhost on port 80.

I was using Appserv for the longest time, but then i decided to try out Wamp. After not like wamp so much, i switched to Xampp (It has worked before on my pc). Now xampp won't work due to the reasons stated above. So far ive tried changing the port in httpd.conf to 1000 but i still have the same problem.

Is there an entry in the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file that may hold a clue?

Try and start Apache using the \xampp\apache_start.bat file as this may provide a response that contains a clue.

You have had many servers installed on your PC and if you did not uninstall or disable them completely ie. left a Windows service uninstalled then this may also give this port 80 issue.

Check using the SCM button in the XAMPP Control Panel and look for running services from any of your old installations - first remove any ticks in the Svc check boxes in XCP.

So check what is using port 80 and port 443 as well as port 3306 and remove the offending programs as XAMPP requires exclusive use of those ports.

A useful portable app for testing ports is Curr Ports from here:

BTW, as per forum etiquette, please be patient and do try not to be sarcastic as this will only give rise to either being ignored completely or at least cause members to reply even slower and could even draw a flame response. ;)

You were right. There was one entry in the error log and it was repeated like a million times. There were no other processes using either ports other than mysqld and httpd.

Code: Select all
[Fri Jul 15 18:06:26 2011] [error] (OS 10038)An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.  : Child 3312: Encountered too many errors accepting client connections. Possible causes: dynamic address renewal, or incompatible VPN or firewall software. Try using the Win32DisableAcceptEx directive.


I uninstalled almost everything that requires access to the Internet with the exception of Chrome.

I absolutely sure now that the problem is not apache. It seems that there is adware on my computer which is using the port which apache uses. I have tried everything to get rid of it. I have scanned my PC with avast and spybot SD.


Any suggestions?

As pointed out in my first reply, you may be able to find out what is using the ports that Apache (XAMPP port 80/443/3306 etc.) needs by downloading and running this little portable utility Curr Ports from here:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/cports.html
It may also allow you to clear any app. that is using a particular port.

Check your \xampp\webdav folder only has 2 files stored in this folder and post back with details if you find more than 2 files.

Sorry I forgot to mention that only mysql and apache are using those ports and it seems like the adware automatically launches my default browser every 10 minutes unless it gets a chance to hijack my google search results.
