Just a newbie starting off with PHP and first time installing XAMPP. I get this error:
12:59:46 PM [Apache] Problem detected!
12:59:46 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!
12:59:46 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
12:59:46 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
12:59:46 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
I changed the settings of my skype so it does not use port 80 and 443. But I still cant get apache to run.
I saw on the forums here you can change the registry or change the ports apache uses.
Is there a better way? I saw some people saying to check what is using port 80 and 443 on windows but I am not sure how to do that in windows 8.
thanks for the help!
