Apache Configuration Question

Getting the error "Apache port:443 is being used by another application" after installing AMPPS

After installing AMPPS for Windows, while trying to launch Apache I get an error saying,


Apache port:443 is being used by another application.


I do not have any other programs (that I know of) such as Skype that are currently running. How can I monitor my 443 port or change the port for Apache?

By the way, I have McAfee as an anti-virus.

Answer Source

Open command prompt(start -> run -> cmd) and type the following command :

C:\> netstat -aon | findstr 0.0:443

Last column of the output is the PID of the application using port 443.

You can find the application name in Task Manager. Go to Process Tab then in Menu Bar of Task Manager go to View -> Select Column -> Check "PID" and press Ok. Search for the PID in the list(Click Below "Show processes from all users" in case if you don't find the PID), corresponding process is the application which is using port 443. Stop or Uninstall it to make your AMPPS Apache work.
