It seems that my port 80 has been hijacked. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the wamp server numberous times, rebooting my system between each re-install. The Aestan tray "encounters problems" and is never available.
I'm running windows XP
I don't have Skype and I run a virus scan every day or so.
Where can I go to look at my port 80 and what it is doing. I'm dead in the water with my PHP work until I can figure this out.
Thanks for your help.
I've used this app to determine what application is using a certain local port:
TCPView for Windows
In your case, you'd want to see what application is using local port 80.
Really appreciate your willingness to help.
I've downloaded this and it's running. There are many columns but none with the number 80. Don't really know how to look.
It's open now.
From a command prompt enter netstat /?
You can use netstat to see what process id is listening on what port, along with taskman it will identify the offending process. I think in windows it's netstat -anp but the reason I mentioned /? was because I don't remember and I'm not on a windows machine right now.
You should check the windows event logs too, perhaps you are having some other error causing your problem not a port conflict.
