Apache v2 Help (newbie)

Recommended Posts

I\'m trying to install Apache Web Server on XP/2000 (two different computers). The error says:


\"C:Program FilesApache GroupApache2bin>apache

(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\"


Like many others who have had the same errors, I\'ve tried switching the Listen to different numbers: 8000, 8080, etc. I\'ve gone to the DOS prompt and typed in NETSTAT -ANO (somebody told me to do that for XP specifically b/c it shows the IP and Port no. as well as PID). I\'m a newbie at this so I don\'t really know what I\'m looking for much less know what a PID is (apparently for PID, I\'m suppose to go to CTRL Panel->Admin->Services and shutdown the PID using Port 80 ?????)


Anyway, I have no clue on how to do that. Am I using IIS? and how do I go about shutting that down? Somebody also said that McAfee may affect how Apache is running so I should shut it down. I did and it still doesn\'t work.


On the other computer which has 2000 Pro on it, the first thing I installed was MySQL, then Apache. MySQL works fine, but I get the same error as I did with XP.


Can anyone provide newbie step by step instructions on how I should go about configuring Apache to work on XP or 2000?


Should I just change the 2000 Pro OS to Linux and use that computer/OS as a server (I\'ve never used linux before).


I\'m just trying to get my feet wet with servers and such. Thanks.
