I having a problem install Apache HTTP Server 2.0.63 on my Windows XP SP2 workstation. Below is error message I have received:

(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port)
is normally permitted.  : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:8080
no listening sockets available, shutting down

- My XP SP2 workstation Firewall is DISABLE.
- I  DO NOT install IIS on my PC.
- I have tired change the Apache port to 85 instead of 80 or 8080, but still can not, but different error show, see below:
[error] (OS 2)The system cannot find the file specified
: No installed service named "Apache2".

No idea what is the root caused of this issue, it seem like not able install the Apache service on my PC.

Anyone can advise?

I would suggest uninstalling apache and using WAMP to install it. WAMP installs Apache, PHP and MySql onto a windows system. I have done this many times with no issues at all.

http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php

Its a great little program. Very easy single point for all three installs.

I think I should shut down the SKYPE first then install Apache. Now I do not have problem running SKYPE and Apache together. :)
