When I try to launch XAMPP 1.7.1 win 32 in the system I facing some difficulty. The download was good, without any issue. Then I start the installation it went almost to the end like 99% but all of sudden I got this error message. I just followed the instruction to install the software. Don’t understand where I went wrong? Please help. Thanks.
Ports 80 or 443 (SSL) already in use! Installing Apache2.2 service failed
XAMPP Installation Error “Port 80 or 443 already in use.Apache2.2 service failed.”
This is such an issue that is happening because of the port being used by another process. You have to stop the process and restart your PC if necessary.
Start Command Prompt. Go to Start menu >> All programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt.
Type and enter the following command:
Find out the line containing “0.0.0.0:80”. Remember the PID of the process.
Then, run this command:
taskkill /pid <PID>
Replace the PID number here.
You have just finished killing the process. Now, just run the installation again and then restart your PC.
