Apache won't start - tried suggestions, need more help

Postby WesG » 01. February 2015 03:35

I have worked down through the suggested fixes offered by Altrea » 24. June 2014 08:37
as far as saving the notepad host file.

When I try to save the file, I get the following error:
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

What is my next step?

...Configure HTTP.sys to only bind to IPv6

Only bind to IPv6 has the advantage that HTTP.sys can still be used without influencing Apache on IPv4 anymore.

Open your Windows commandline with elevated administrative rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator)
type in the following command

Code: Select all
netsh http add iplisten ipaddress=::


If http://localhost will still not work after that, you need to resolve localhost to the IPv4 address 127.0.0.1

Open your notepad with elevated administrative rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator)
With File -> Open navigate to your \Windows\sytsem32\drivers\etc\ folder
change your filetype from Textfiles (*.txt) to All Files (*.*)
open your hosts file
add the following line

Code: Select all
localhost 127.0.0.1

Save the file
