Xampp/Wampp Apache Crashes on Start

It displays “Busy” in the shell but it’s not started?

Executing “apache_start.bat” says something like :

(OS 10048)Une seule utilisation de chaque adresse de socket (protocole/adresse réseau/port) est habituellement autorisée.  : make_sock: could not bind to addres s


Then, if you are using Skype then the solution is here :


Shut it down or disable the use of 80 and 443 port in the advanced connection settings and restart.

Then, restart your Xampp/Wampp Apache server, and you are back on business.
