CurrPorts Question #43
Long story short. My desktop crashed. It's in the computer shop and the guy still hasn't found a fix for it. So I have to reinstall everything on my laptop. argh! Anyhow. I finally figured how to reinstall composer and redirect it to the right version of php. Yay.
Then I when I tried to start XAMPP. it doesn't because the port is block. I downloaded currPort as suggested by the Professor Susan Buck. It shows that Port 80 is being used. I can't kill it because apparently it has a "Remote Host Name" of an old employer. They gave me the laptop. But does this mean everything I do is logged back to the old employer? I tried to close and kill the proces and run currPort as an Administrator. No luck.
I feel seriously behind. I've been catching up with the lectures and trying to do Project 3 then my desktop crashed. Do any of you guys know how to reclaim this and block the "Remote HostName" of the old employer? haha. Much appreciation!
hi @susanBuck : Thanks for the suggestions! I changed the config file(httpd.conf) in XAMPP
Then I restarted XAMPP and I got the following error messages:
However, when I typed in http://localhost:8888/dashboard/ it shows the dashboard correctly.

However, when I type in http://foobooks.loc:8888 it doesn't work
Then when I run XAMPP as administrator it said:
I had a similar issue where System process with PID 4 was using Port 80. In my case only one instance of it in currPort. I disabled IIS and uninstalled all MS SQL Server versions, which seemed to work. This might not be an option in your case, but I thought I would mention it. Susan's instructions for resolving a different port are probably easier.
