I installed XAMPP v.1.7.7. But during the installation, I was asked if I will install Apache and other services. I agreed with the installation but an error “Ports 80 or 443 (SSL) already in use! Installing Apache2.2 service failed!” appeared when starting XAMPP. I need to install this because I will be using Joomla. Can someone please help?
Installation of Apache2.2 Service Failed
The error is indicating that the ports are already in use. You can try to check the following information:
· Verify and make sure that the port 80 and 443 are all clear for usage.
· Try to start your XAMPP control panel
· Make sure that SVC checkbox to install the apache service.
Another thing that may contribute to this error is if you have firewall or security software on your computer which prohibits the application to run. You may try to disable it first then see if it will run. If it does, try to change the settings of your firewall to allow access for XAMPP.
