I just installed apache on my machine (Win XP).
However when I start apache, it just starts and then exits with the
following error in the error log.
[error] make_sock: unable to listen for connection on port 80
I have done a netstat -a and find that no other service is
running/listening to port 80 (for eg IIS) that might be causing this.
I have changed the port to 3213 instead of 80, in this case the error
[error] make_sock: unable to listen for connection on port 3213
If I try to start apache as a service it just starts and then exits
I have disabled the windows firewall and tried too. Does'nt help. I
even tried the 'rebooting' trick but in vain.
I installed mysql on the same day, and that seems to be working fine.
Any ideas what could be wrong with apache.
