Installing XAMPP on Win2008R2 64-bit: error with port 80

Postby westerdaled » 07. September 2012 15:39

Hi

I want to run XAMPP on my Windows 2008R2 64-bit dev machine so that I can host a local copy of my blog. I thought would install XAMP but realised I would need to disable IIS 7

  • First I nuke IIS 7 with net stop was /y
  • Check what could be listening on port 80 with C:\Users\Administrator> netstat -anb
  • Uncheck Skype ->Advance-Connection -> Ports 80 and 443
  • edit Httpd.conf to ensure server listens on port 80
  • edit the /windows/system32/drives/etc/hosts
    and add
    127.0.0.1 myblog.local

Note, I don't think I can add another real or virtual network card in this instance.
I am still getting an error when attempting to start Apache


TCP 127.0.0.1:80 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING Can not obtain ownership information

20:30:59 [main] Control Panel Version: 3.0.12 [ Compiled: June 24th 2012 ] 20:30:59 [main] Running with Administrator rights - good! 20:30:59 [main] XAMPP Installation Directory: "c:\devtools\xampp\" 20:30:59 [main] Initializing Modules 20:30:59 [apache] Possible problem detected! 20:30:59 [apache] Port 80 in use by "system"! 20:30:59 [mercury] Possible problem detected! 20:30:59 [mercury] Port 110 in use by "inetinfo.exe"! 20:30:59 [tomcat] Possible problem detected!


I do get Apache started if I change the port in 82 or 8080


Any advice please.

'system' usually indicates a Windows Service is using that port. A common one is World Wide Publishing service. 'inetinfo.exe' is related to IIS.

You need to either find all these blockers and disable/modify them or change the listening ports for XAMPP and reconfigure the XAMPP CP to use those new ports.
