    Check for Port 80 conflicts


    I had a similar problem. I tried most of the solutions volunteered above, none of them worked. Turns out skype was using port 80 which is why apache did not load. If port 80 is being used you can find which application is using it by running xampp-control-3-beta which you can find in the xampp root directory.

    I will tell you in red which application is port 80, or what other possible error is preventing Apache from loading.

    Hello, I've noticed that you guys were have trouble with apache, Because Skype is using Port : 80. So I've tried everything, until i tried something so simple.

    Here is how i did it.
    -Go to skype, Right click on skype icon >Sign Out. Then Right Click Icon again >Quit Skype.
    -Now got you Local C:drive or what ever your using. Go to xxamp beta.
    -Now under apache click config>Apache (httpd.config).
    -Notepad will pop-out. Scroll down to where it says Listen 12 or 80.
    -If its still 80 leave it. If its change change the port to 80.

    Listen: change it to Listen:
    Listen [::]:13 change it to Listen [::]:80
    Listen 13 change it to Listen 80

    Then Restart xxamp Server. Then click start if it has not started. > Click Admin. & It should pop-up.

    If you want snapshots just relpy saying you would like snapshots! or just ask any questions.
