[solved]Apache for XAMPP won't start all of a sudden! HELP!

Postby nomzorious » 12. March 2012 14:09

Hi all.
I run XAMPP for Windows 7, to run a multi-site Drupal installation.

Today I woke up and tried to start my XAMPP server but Apache won't load! I press "start" and nothing happens, it does not say "Running". I am using xampp-control.exe.
If I use apache_start.bat it says:
[Mon Mar 12 15:07:06 2012] [warn] _default_ VirtualHost overlap on port 80, the
first has precedence
(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port)
is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:443
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Apache could not be started


I haven't even used XAMPP for a few days. The only thing that has changed on my PC is windows updates.
Its not skype using port 80.

PLEASE HELP ME! :| :| I have a website to finish.

The first message just say, that your VHosts are not defined unique. This can cause unwished and difficult to debug behaviors, but Apache can work with it because it serves the first Vhost with priority.

But your Port 443 is blocked. You should find out which programm, process or service block this port.

best wishes,

Thank you very much for the reply, my problem was with the virtual machine program VMWare. As soon as I uninstalled it, XAMPP worked, so it must have been using one of the ports.
My XAMPP is now working! Problem solved.
