Xampp Port 80 Problem


My Solution


Xampp_NoRun

After experincing this problem with Xampp and endlessly searching for a solution and not being able to find one that I could understand or implement, I decided to find the problem cause by a process of eleimination.

I must state that I am in no way an IT expert so my solution may be too simplistic, but it worked for me.  Here go's!

Click on Windows to open Windows Explorer,

Windows_System

In the Search programs and files box, type in "system" without the quotes,

Select "System Configuration",

In the system configuration panel that opens up select "Services"

System_Services

Scroll down the list of services and Un-check the box next to "World Wide Web Publishing Service",

Click on "Apply"

Click on "OK"

Select "Restart Computer"

Hopefuly, job done

Xampp_Runs

I actually deselected every option in the services menu, checked that Xampp then worked, worked through the process again this time selecting half of the check boxes, and so on until I found the one that was affecting Xampp and causing it not to function.  Good Luck!
