Error on IIS 7.0 – Help me

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi,

What I did is that I tried opening a website in IIS by right click. The website did not open instead received this error.
 
I use Windows Vista operating system and running IIS 7.0. I tried Netstat command to see if some other program is using the same port number. I'm unable to proceed further as the instruction seems to be too confusing and too much technical. 

Please help me to overcome this error in an easier way.

Error: “The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)”

Thanks,

Fayee

You are on the right track using NETSTAT. This error is occurring because something else is using port 80, which is what IIS wants to use. To test if this is the problem, you can change the binding for the default website to 8080 and it should resolve the issue. If that fixes the issue, then port sharing is the problem. Common applications that also try to use this are Skype or Kontiki.

The PID might not give a good indicator of who/what is using the port. You might be able to avoid this by running IIS before the other programs so that it automatically assumes port 80 and the other applications will find another.

Hi,

    Probably there is some application which is trying to use the port 80. Set the bindings for default website port number 8080.

You can find out the program which is interrupting and using port 80, by running command NETSTAT –ano | “:80”. Try to find out the o/p PID in the task manager. Mostly this conflict rises due to messengers or video editing programs.

If you have Apache installed just try to bind to another port.
