Laragon Full 4.0.16 - Service Apache can not start
I've installed Laragon 4.0.16 on a Windows 10 Pro machine, but now I'm having trouble with Apache starting. Probably easiest to have a look at the picture below. I've tried installing new versions of both Apache & PHP to no avail.
It was working fine before, but I got an error message and uninstalled/reinstalled unfortunately so I'm not sure what's going on.
Any help is appreciated.
The error states Apache could not bind to port 443, my guess is you already have something else running on port 443.
- Laragon > Menu > Tools > Netstat. You should see an entry like this:
.... TCP 0.0.0.0:443 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 476 C:\laragon\bin\apache\httpd-2.4.35-win64-VC15\bin\httpd.exe ....
If you have another program running, stop it, or uninstall it. IF you need the other program then change the port Laragon uses:
- Laragon > Menu > Preferences > Services & Ports tab, change the SSL port, e.g. 443 > 8443 or un-tick the Enabled box.
After installing/uninstalling try a reboot too. Sometimes that clears the memory and ports.
And Skype is the usual suspect.
