What I already tryed:
1) I schwitched off my fierwall
2) I ensured that that skype is not running on port 80 and 143
3) I followed the following steps (without knowing what I'm doing)
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
Save the file
I really appreciate any helps and hints. thx
