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 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?

To install Apache, I downloaded the latest .msi file. I double clicked it and it installed without any problem. I didn't have to go through the command line.

Just "upgraded" to vista since a zune update and intel wirless driver update from windows update corrupted my laptop.

Anyways, you can either uninstall iis, reverse steps from the link above your request, or "edit bindings" in iis to listen on a different port. Comp management->Services-> IIS -> default web site (or whatever you named your web site) -> right click and select edit bindings. Change the port IIS uses (80 for web by default).

This is useful for the initial install of apache to make life easier using the msi. Then you can change apaches ports (Listen: port), and move iis back if you want.

if you tell apache to install as a service, you can later edit the service startup to manual, or start automatically. Then the apache monitor can start it with a simple right click of the task bar apache monitor icon. otherwise, you will have to start apache manually and have a command window open as the daemon runs (Apache service, in *nix everything is a daemon instead of a service).

Just what I find easier. Then I know what is running, and get the ease of use of point and click.

Have had no end of problems running Apache (within WAMP-Server 2) - on my laptop (Vista).

Could not run PHPMyAdmin - 404 errors.

Eventually found out about the PORT 80 thingy - changed Apache to listen on 8080 - and presto Apache worked - but not "PMA"

So back again - this morning I just by chance hit the combination 'ii' when I was searching for a competely diffferent set of files and Hey Presto at the top of the list of programs up pops "Internet Information Manager IIS" opened it up and there found a Default Database "Binding 80" changed that to 8080 and the rest is History.

All working fine - now all I have to do is learn how to develop a web served database using WAMP Server 2 (which comes with II7 anyway) see you all in about ten years.
