Apache webserver error on startup

March 29th, 2016 Comments off

I don’t use Apache that often, (not as often as I used to), but when I do I sometime get an error telling me that

(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address no listening sockets available, shutting down Unable to open logs

Now in my case the error was because of skype.exe that was using port 443

But if you need to know who is using it simply open the command line and type

netstat -ano

And, somewhere in the list, you will give see something that is using, but you will not see the name, you will see the pid, (the process id).

BTW: to get the error message, you can get it via the logs or you can open a command line and run the Apache server manually.

httpd.exe -k start
