Installing/configuring Apache first time.

Postby karlkras » 13. October 2015 17:45

Hello,
So I installed xampp for a netbeans tutorial. On initial startup of apache there was a port conflict on 443 since Skype was using it so I went about redefining the ports for my xampp apache instance to use a different set of ports (8080 and 4433 respectively).
Restarted the xampp control panel (v3.2.1) and started Apache. Again I get these same conflicting messages:

9:38:43 AM [Apache] Problem detected!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" with PID 6020!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
9:38:44 AM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Problem detected!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Port 443 in use by "C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" with PID 6020!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
9:38:44 AM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
9:38:44 AM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app...
9:38:44 AM [Apache] Status change detected: running

but apache appears to start up now and is running fine. (I can hit localhost:8080 as would have expected), but wondering why the dashboard still spits out these log errors.
thanks.

Thats just the wrong way. You should have configured Skype *NOT* to use the HTTP Standard Ports (as these are the default for HTTP, not for Skype).

Hey Nobbie, well that would have been the better solution, but Skype, aka, Microsoft does not make these ports configurable.

well, that's what I get for believing a quick google response on Skype configuration. Yep, problem solved.
