Windows 7: apache does not work, port 80 is used by...

apache does not work, port 80 is used by...

I recently installed wampserver on my computer (apache, mysql, php). It is apache 2.2.17 version. However i cannot get it to start, and the wamp server icon stays yellow.

I've tried to find some information on other forums. Apparently the problem is that port 80 is used by another program and therefore apache cant use it. But i cannot find out which program (information not available). I don't have skype installed, so that cant be the problem. Any suggestions how to identify and turn of the other program using port 80?

Thanks.

If you type 127.0.0.1 or localhost into your webbrowser does any page display?

Port 80 is the port used by your internet browser! You probably need to search more on the WAMP or XAMPP boards for the answer to this one.

I'm not sure about the step. I have play with IIS setup not Apache. But Port 80 would be blocked by default in Router. Get into your router and open the Port. Then go to Open Port Check Tool and test for Port 80 to see if it's blocked

Not sure ... But mine and lot of cases I have seen was blocked in router. The website I mentioned for is what I used to check it. They block it to prevent worm attack. Just Google Port 80 blocked

You could block it but you wouldn't get out on the web..See this for port allocations:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...P_port_numbers
