After working with WAMP5 today with no problem I started up my Laptop to do somemore work this evening and Apache wont start. MySQL starts ok but no Apache. Test port 80 says that " your port 80 is not actually used ".

I removed the Apache service and reinstalled it from WAMP5 in the task bar and the dos prompt said that port 80 was available.

I'm running XP home. Any ideas!!!

regards

Paul

IIS could be using port 80

check yur services for any IIS or SMTP services and stop them

Thanks David,

Looked for ages last night and could not find the problem. Got up this morning and found it straight away.It was in the httpd.conf file again. I changed the doc root yesterday, once I restarted the laptop it didnt like it. Changed it back and all is well.

Cheers mate
