Apache with vista

5 New Member
hey guys, i'm currently using the newest version of apache with vista business. after finishing installing, it pops up an error msg saying that i must change my httpd config before using the service. it also prompts a small error msg box.

when i try to manually start the apache service, it says <0S 10048> Only one usage of each socket address <protocol/network address/port> is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down.

when i try to click on Monitor Apache Servers, it juz prompts the same small error msg box.

but when i tried going http://localhost/, it actually works.

and everytime when i turn on my com, the same small error msg box appears.

can anyone help?

yea, it works after changing the port to 8081. but problems start arising one after another. arghh! everytime i boot up my laptop, there is this small pop up error box whenever apache starts automatically i think.

Also, the testing of localhost works when i was having the error of manually starting apache. after changing to 8081, localhost doesnt work anymore =(

Rather than change your Apache port, why not disable IIS (if this is what you have concluded was taking up port 80)?

Generally I want to manually open ports as much as possible not have some programs open ports for themselves "behind my back". From their installation instructions
"
Select for All Users, on Port 80, as a Service - Recommended if you'd like your new Apache to listen at port 80 for incoming traffic. It will run as a service (that is, Apache will run even if no one is logged in on the server at the moment) Select only for the Current User, on Port 8080, when started Manually if you'd like to install Apache for your personal experimenting or if you already have another WWW server running on port 80."
You don't want to have a port open that you are not using.
My bet is that it is possible for this open port to be manipulated by ...

Completely understandable. If I were to paraphrase, your position would be, "Only install as a service if you intend your machine to be a web server; running Apache as a service on your desktop places both an unnecessary risk, and additional computation on your personal computer."

I'm not good at paraphrasing so I'll accept that.

Hello,

I've managed to get Apache running under Vista. If I type in http://localhost, I get the "It works!" page fine.

My problem is that PHP files aren't being executed - if I type in test.php, it will just dump the source code of the file into the browser.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

How silly of me! Apache's just the web server - I need to install the PHP module!

In fact, I'll just install PHP and use it with IIS 7!

My new OS is Vista Business. I had IIS on XPpro and it worked fine. On Vista, IIS wouldn't work. I downloaded the latest Apache .msi and installed it. My problem is that my web site is visible when Windows Firewall is turned off, but is invisible when turned on. I can't seem to find the way to get past the firewall. Thanks, Don
