Read my post (currently two below this one :-) Had similar issue.
Spoiler: It was other start-up apps that were consuming Port 80.

I read that thread but i don't know how to close apps on port 80. And that assumes i have the same issue.

SirChick

Its impossible to diagnose the problem knowing without the XAMPP Version and OS version
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48626

Please add that info to your profile in User Control Panel

As a start - If Apache has started then there should be some clues in \xampp\apache\logs\error_log.txt

Thanks and Good Luck

OK -

Use the control panel Beta version in your XAMPP root. Click the netstat button BEFORE you try to Start Apache. If something is running on Port 80 OR 443 it should tell you - both 80 and 443 have to be clear for 1.7.7 to run on Windows.

I have to work on a remote server update for 'work', so I may not be back for a while, some of the others may catch your answers. I'll check when I get a chance.

Good Luck

The World Wide Publishing service is known to take up this port on Windows 7. You can check to see if it is there by opening your services manager (Start > Run > services.msc). If it is there, you can stop and disable it.

It is part of IIS and can be safely disabled if you are not using it.
