Xampp on Windows 7 32 bit

Postby ghan » 19. December 2009 21:46

I cannot for the life of me get Xampp to work on Windows 7.
MySql works fine, but Apache won't run. It seems to have problem binding the 80 port. I've tried alterning the .conf file in apache to point to port 85, but it still keeps trying to bind to 80 (and failing).

First put the httpd.conf file back to the defaults.

Then try again to use http://localhost

If it fails with an error message then read the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file.

If Apache can't bind to port 80 then it usually means that another server is using the port - Skype and or IIS.

Find the culprit and if Skype then configure it to not use port 80/443 or disable it in the case of IIS.

Since I don't have skype running when the problem occurs, I guess it must be IIS. However, I have not been able to find a way to change that in Windows 7.
I'm seriously considering downgrading to XP, as this pain in the neck is severely irritating.
Thanks for your help anyway.

I doubt it is necessary to downgrade... Because I am using windows 7 64... What I came across by accident is that sometimes you have to restart the comp to get everything to work correctly... I don't use skpe But I am on a shared network... So look more closely at your network configuration both on your pc and that of your network to identify problems. It may also help to set up Apache to run under a different user/group. This seemed to make things work more efficiently for me.

Also make sure that your firewall/ant-virus scanner is not blocking your server's ports.
