Hi all,

I cannot get apache to start. It says port 80 Busy.
Many posts have suggested skype to be causing this issue. I do not have a skype installed on my PC.
In the command windows when i did a netstat -aon,  i see that port 80 is being used by a PID 4 which is a system Process.
I used netstat -abno which says it cannot obtain ownership information for port 80.


How do i get this working?

Is there any chance you have other web server installed? For example IIS? If yes, try to open windows components/features and uninstall it (Internet information Services).

You can also change its settings to other port: IIS > Web Server > select the server > sites > Default Web Site > Bindings > change port 80 to something else.

Hi papalala, hintco

I have IIS installed on this PC.
I tried to change the port that apache listens to from the apache->conf->httpdconf

#Listen 0.0.0.0:8080
#Listen [::]:8080
Listen 8080

It seems to be running now.
Thanks
