I have installed XAMP server to my computer, but at the end of installation, it shows a message that, "ports 80 or 443 (SSL) already in use! installation apache 2.0 service failed!". But when I run the XAMP server, firstly Apache does not run, but if I start Apache, then it runs as usual. When I created a database and installed CMS system, it shows an error.
So, question is that whether the server does not work well. Would anybody help me to solve this problem?
Apache installation port 80 error Would anybody help?
XAMPP is a very sensitive software. So there are many reasons for showing installation error at the time of XAMPP installation. First clean all the virus from your computer, then run a cleaner as Cc cleaner. Then install XAMPP.
If it is still not working, then install your Skype and run it. Log in here, with your username and password. Then go to tools and select option. This list will appear.
Select Advance and then Collection. There will be a line with this word “Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections” and a check mark in front of it. Just uncheck it and save changes. Now Skype will run just like before and XAMPP will use port 80 to run.
