I cannot start apache on xampp, it says
I have googled this many times and I have tried the following solutions:
- Skype no longer uses port 80/443
- Teamviewer no longer uses port 80/443
- Adding the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP(Solution found here)
But none of these work, when I visit
localhost on a browser it will load but just give a blank page, even thought apache isn't started.
I have also run
netstat -ano on command prompt, I get the following entries using port 80:
TCP 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 4 and
TCP [::]:80 [::]:0 LISTENING 4
Both are being used by PID 4 which is System when I look it up in task manager.
I have also googled around and seen that this may be caused by VMWare which I have installed but I cannot seem to find a solution for this, can anyone help me with this please. If you need more information then please comment and I will add it.
After running the beta control panel, I get the following in the logs:
12:57:41 [apache] Possible problem detected: Port 80 in use by "system"!
12:57:41 [apache] Possible problem detected: Port 443 in use by "vmware-hostd.exe"!
