Error while starting Apache

Postby dhanushgr » 18. January 2016 08:31


I recently installed xampp on windows 10 , I get the following the error when i try to start apache on xampp. Please help.

Problem detected!
12:49:43 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by ""c:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice" with PID 1928!
12:49:43 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
12:49:43 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
12:49:43 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

I tried changing the port number in the httpd config file. But still the same error. This problem only exists with apache.
