XAMPP: error with port 80 in Apache

Postby ojaolo » 14. January 2016 10:54

XAMPP could not found the localhost on the browser. I change to port 8080 by editing the log in config from port 80 and I was able to access Apache. I want to be able to use port 80 which is the default localhost. Can anyone explain how to do that? below is the error log I got for using port 80.
