hi there,
I want to use Joomla on my PC and in order to use it i need to install Wampserver. so i went to http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php and i got the latest wampserver. Iinstalled the 32 bit version and follow the screen directions. After installation i notice the server is giving me WAMPSERVER - Server offline i tried to refresh but nothing happens.
I went to Administrative tools, Event Viewer and i saw these three errors:

1. The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> (OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.  : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80     .

2. The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> no listening sockets available, shutting down    

3. The Apache service named  reported the following error:
>>> Unable to open logs  

so i went online i research these errors, some sources mention that probably IIS is running and is blocking port 80. so in order for me to ruled this out i did this http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/a0384d23-7a8f-4c6e-9968-7f6836ac54b1.mspx?mfr=true stop IIS
came back to refresh WAMPSERVER and still nothing happens. it remains offline!
any ideas?

hello
try setting :
1) your computer's ip on binding address (apache configuration-httpd.conf if i'm not mistaken)
2) shutdown programs before opening apache to find out what is keeping busy port 80 .

did you tried to set the ip address of the computer on the configuration file?

instead of 0.0.0.0:80 set it to something like 192.168.1.1:80 (192.168.1.1 ip of machine)
