APACHE CANNOT START DUE TO PORT 80 ERROR

Postby Ron Wolpa » 02. September 2013 16:50

I`ve just installed xampp-win32-1.8.3-1-VC11-installer.exe.
Installation is succesfull but as I ran xampp I´ve got an error message as pasted below.
What can be using port 80 and how to free it ?
Thank you for your support
ps.: op sistem is windows 8 build 6200 64 bits

I acessed the task manager > services to find out which pid is using what port.
None seems to be employing port 80.
In a 2nd attempt I opened httpd.conf and changed "ServerName localhost:" , which was 80 by default , to port 8080.
Apache has not started as well.
Any other suggestions ?
thanks

Suggestion is to run control panel with admin privileges and it will tell you what is using port. And if you do change port (not best solution) you need to configure control panel to match and request http:// page views in browser with :8080 extension (i.e. http://localhost/index.php:8080).
