Something else like tomcat or JBoss is probably running on that port.

to change the port used by the debugger in PHPEd goto Tools > Settings

Then under IDE > Run & Debug

click on Use custom Port and host and change the port to soething else.

Also check The CRV web server Port under Run & Debug.

as crossdev pointed out, you can set it on any port as long as you already add exception for that soft in that port in all firewalls/antivirus ;)
