Hi gramost,

This means you'll have to change the port in the configuration file. You just need to:
- start the XAMPP "Control Panel"
- press the button "Config" for Apache
- in the menu that opens choose "Apache (httpd.conf)" and click on it
- in the text that opens find "Listen 80" and change it to "Listen 81"
- now in the same text find "ServerName localhost:80" and change it to "ServerName localhost:81"
- close the text
- in "XAMPP Control Panel" click on Start"

It should work now.
